Description

Pobjoy Mint are delighted to announce the release of a cupro nickel coin from Ascension Island which features the majestic Queen Triggerfish. The design on this beautiful new coin shows a Queen Triggerfish swimming above a coral reef.  

The Queen Triggerfish (Balistes vetula) is a reef-dwelling triggerfish found in the Atlantic Ocean.  In the eastern Atlantic it is found at Ascension, Cape Verde and Azores.  The large oval-shaped fished is so named due to its unique spines on its anterior dorsal fins which are used to lock the fish into a crevice during the night.  The first spine locks and the second spine unlocks, like a trigger.  This prevents predators from pulling them free or swallowing the fish. 

The coin is available in coloured Purple Titanium and also in Unc. Cupro Nickel. The obverse of the coin features the exclusive Pobjoy Mint Effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

The Queen Triggerfish also has special membranes which are used to produce a throbbing sound which warns other fish to stay away.   The species is generally shy and will move away from divers if followed.  However, during breeding season, they will aggressively defend their nests and they can inflict a nasty bite as they have strong jaws with strong incisor-like specialised teeth which are used to chisel holes into the hard shells of their prey.
