A Beautiful Sea Turtle Coin from Seychelles
I find it interesting that I have always sold more Turtle coins than any other category. So, my hunt for nice turtle coins is always on. This coin from Seychelles features the endangered Green Sea Turtle, and is quite eye catching to wear.
Seychelles consists of 115 islands with a population of only 100,000 people total. It is the smallest African country, and is located off the East African coast. It has 3 official languages of Creole, English, and French and the population is quite a "melting pot."
The country is extremely beautiful with white sand beaches, turquoise waters, and lush forests. There is an extremely diverse amount of marine life. It is considered one of the best diving sites in the world.
Seychelles is over 99% water. Land mass is only .03% of the country.
When I used to do art shows, I seemed to always have men hanging out at my booth. Most were curious about coins and liked looking at what was on display. Some men enjoyed talking to my husband and just relaxed while their significant other was still shopping the show. I suspect that if I had offered money clips back then, a few men would have wanted to buy them.
Actually, I like to use money clips too, so they aren't only for men! I like to carry a very small purse, and a money clip is perfect to hold some cash and my license and a credit card. All I really need, besides my cell phone, for running errands around town.
I usually have a small variety of money clips in my online shop to consider, whether it is for yourself or as a gift for someone else.
I love sharing the interesting stories behind these coins. It is one way to explore the world, and learning more about animals and nature important to each country.
