As of 2019, there are seven species of sea turtles that grace our oceans. Pobjoy Mint is delighted to have been able to feature five of these stunning animals on a brand new 50 pence series on behalf of the British Indian Ocean Territory. 

The majority of a sea turtle's body is protected by its shell, with the shell being made up of smaller plates called scutes. Importantly, for all types of species of sea turtles, females and males are the same sizes.
