Coin Story

The Hawksbill turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata bissa), or locally named Taku, is one of two main turtle species of the South Pacific island nation of Fiji. Although they have a wide distribution throughout the world's tropical regions, Hawksbill Turtles are considered critically endangered due to human fishing practices. Taku grow up to a metre in length and a weight of 80kg, although the heaviest on record weighed 127kg.

Struck from .999 fine silver, this gold gilded Taku coin is presented in an aqua blue gift box, the same color as the waters of the Pacific Ocean. This issue is also available as a silver bullion coin.

Reverse Design

The reverse features a gold gilded Taku with a stylized shell pattern swimming through the waters of the Pacific Ocean along with an engraved heading and the coin's metal quality and weight.

Obverse Design

The obverse of the coin features the Raphael Maklouf effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.


The coin comes encapsulated in a striking cylindrical display case with a transparent lid filled with aquamarine liquid.
