First British Indian Ocean Territory Titanium coin EVER produced!

Green turtles are one of the most iconic animals that swim the sea and to celebrate this beautiful creature Pobjoy Mint is producing a limited number of Titanium and Cupro Nickel coins. The coin depicts a pair of turtles swimming in unison with the sun warming their shells. When striking we have managed to capture a high level of detail on the shells of the Turtles, a feat that is especially difficult on Titanium coins due to the hardness of the metal.

Green Turtles (Chelonia mydas) are a large sea turtle which takes their name from the fat found beneath their carapace. (Their shells, ironically, are brown to black of colour) These large migratory herbivores often inhabit shallow lagoons but also travel long distances between feeding and nesting grounds. 

As Titanium reacts differently with every strike, each Green Turtle coin is technically different and varies slightly in colour. There is also a lined effect that is present on the coins which is unique to this metal. The obverse features the Pobjoy exclusive effigy design of HM Queen Elizabeth II in exceptional detail.
