Sea Turtle shaped Silver Coin

    Coin Invest Trust (CIT) produces yet another groundbreaking design using their Smartminting technology, this time featuring the sea turtle.
    The endangered sea turtle is immortalised in this special shaped silver coin struck to a sculpture-like high relief. Following its predecessor Lucky Panda of the same year, the coin is produced to a remarkable detail, with fine etchings on the carapace and detailed scale pattern highlighting the sea turtle’s features. The other side displays an embossed coin of the country of issue. 

    Sea turtles have been around since the time of the dinosaurs. These ancient creatures inhabit the world’s warm and temperate waters, in bays, lagoons and estuaries. Most sea turtles migrate long distances between their feeding and nesting grounds. Their diet may consist of jellyfish, seaweed, crabs and mollusks. Little is known about sea turtle populations because they spend most of their time in the water. Data on their numbers is based on observing female turtles when they return to the same nesting beach, laying between 70-190 eggs in a clutch. The sand temperatures where the eggs are buried affect the sex of the hatchlings. Of the seven species, the Kemp’s ridley is the smallest at 30 inches (76.2 cm) long while the leatherback is the largest, with adults reaching over 1.8 m.
