  • Diamond Finish commemorative coins available with die mark
  • Low issue limit of 3,750

Pobjoy Mint is delighted to announce the final release in the stunning Turtles 50p series on behalf of the British Indian Ocean Territory. The fifth and final coin in the popular series features the Olive Ridley turtle.

Sea turtles have existed for 120 million years. They have a soft bony shell, flipper-like limbs and spend an incredible 99% of their lives in the ocean. Maybe the most fascinating trait of the sea turtles is their incredible ability to precisely navigate their way back to the area where they were born every few years.

The Olive Ridley turtle name comes from their greenish color of its skin and shell or carapace. The Olive Ridley is one of the smallest of the sea turtles, weighing up to 100 pounds and reaching only about two feet in shell length. Olive Ridley sea turtles are considered the most abundant, yet globally they have declined by more than 30% from historic records.

This stunning 50 pence coin features an Olive Ridley turtle that is really brought to life with the exquisite color. The obverse of the coin features the Pobjoy Mint effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

The coin is produced in Cupro Nickel Diamond Finish and will be housed in a blue pouch. A special color album, which is sold separately, has been designed to house all five coins.
