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.
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.
