Pobjoy Mint is delighted to announce the fourth coin in the stunning new series of 50p coins featuring Sea Creatures issued on behalf of the British Indian Ocean Territory.   

The fourth coin in the collection features the Checkerboard Wrasse, named after its distinctive pattern. The design on the coin features an adult Checkerboard Wrasse swimming along coral reefs.

The Checkerboard Wrasse (Halichoeres hortulanus) is also known as the marble or hortulanus wrasse. They undergo a fairly dramatic transformation in colouring as they age. As juveniles they are white with stripes, dots, and patches of black. With maturity, they become silver with a black checkerboard pattern on the body. The dorsal fin and tail are yellow, and the face is light green with orange to pink striped markings.
