A Taku Turtle from Fiji

“This attractive 1 troy ounce .999 fine silver 2 Dollar coin from Fiji features a stylized Hawksbill turtle, also known as the Taku.  This 2012 issue was the last of Fiji silver Taku with Queen Elizabeth on the obverse.  The 40.5mm coin was struck for Fiji by the New Zealand Mint and has a maximum mintage of just 350,000 pieces.”

Thank you Joel at joelscoins for text and image

I like the compositional curves of the turtle and framing in the round of the coin. I like the spiral swirls in the turtle’s shell. Also the ring-linked bubbles.
