Pobjoy Mint is delighted to announce the fifth coin in the stunning new series of 50p coins featuring Sea Creatures issued on behalf of the British Indian Ocean Territory.
The fifth coin in the collection features the Yellow Longnose Butterflyfish named in three languages for its distinctive elongated jaw. The design on the coin features an adult Yellow Longnose Butterflyfish swimming along coral reefs.
The Yellow Longnose Butterflyfish (Forcipiger longirostris) is a very common butterflyfish. Along with its relative, the big longnose, they have one of the longest Hawaiian fish names, lau-wiliwili-nukunuku-'oi-'oi. Its meaning is "leaf of the wili-wili tree with a sharp nose." The hue of the fish is similar to the colouring of the big, billowy leaves of the Hawaiian wili-wili tree.
