About the Design
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 80 kg, although the heaviest on record weighed 127 kg.

Obverse
The obverse of the coin features the coat of arms of Fiji, denomination, year and name of the country.

Reverse
The reverse features a 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.

This is one of my favorite coins in my stack. The detail is interesting and I do enjoy it the best in my 1/2 ounce collection. The edges are a bit sharp though. Service to get it was awesome! Less than 3 days from ordering!

this is the poorest made coin that I have ever encountered.
the new zealand mint should be ashamed of this product.
Be careful not to cut yourself on the edges.
the service to get it here was great!
lets not confuse the service with the product.

The New Zealand Mint fell on their collective faces when they made this coin. I think that the resolution is very poor. this could possibly be corrected with a double stamp. The edges of the coin are so sharp that a person could cut themselves.
I think that the coin is a shining example of how NOT to make a coin.
