A Titanium Turtle & an Unknown Territory

The British Indian Ocean Territory is something many of you have never heard is a collection of small islands situated halfway between Indonesia and Tanzania. This territory has been under the control of the British Government since 1810 when the Treaty of Paris resulted in ownership transferring from the French to the British. In more recent years, the islands have seen themselves transformed into a joint USA-UK naval base.

Each of these 2017 issues features a stunning design in which two Green Turtles are swimming side-by-side while the sun’s rays warming their shells. Assorted bits and pieces of coral and other sea-life vegetation are displayed beneath the swimming Green Turtles. This specific breed of sea turtle can only be found in a few places worldwide, one of which is on the beaches of Chago’s Island (in particular the island of Diego Carcia, a protected nature reserve where more than half of the female turtles make their nests.)

Not only is this a first-time territory coin, it is also one of the rarest coins released this year in 2017! With a maximum mintage of just 7,500 these coins are sure to disappear fast once word spreads!

Each coin is struck from Green Titanium, an homage to the ‘Deep Blue Sea’, and will arrive encapsulated and in a its original government packaging.
