Pobjoy Mint is delighted to announce the World's Second British Indian Ocean Territory 50p Coin, featuring the Hawksbill Turtle. 

The Hawksbill Sea Turtle gets its name from its narrow, elongated head that tapers sharply to a v-shaped lower jaw. It is one of the smallest species of marine turtles, measuring 75-90cm in length and weighing around 70kg, with Indian Ocean Turtles tending to be smaller than those living in the Pacific and the Atlantic oceans. Diego Garcia in the British Indian Ocean Territory plays host to 1,000 nesting females each year, helping to try and protect this critically endangered species.

The design on the coin features a sleepy-looking Hawksbill Turtle swimming in the ocean. The obverse of the coin features the Pobjoy Mint exclusive effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The coin is available in Cupro Nickel Diamond Finish with the Hawksbill Turtle portrayed in coloured. A special colour album, which is sold separately, has been designed to house all five coins. 

**This coin is sold in a capsule inside a blue pouch. If purchased with an album no pouch will be supplied. If more than 14+ coins have been purchased, please note no pouches will be included and your coins will be dispatched in tubes.**
