The common misconception that people have of turtles is that they are s-l-o-w….. But not so with sea turtles. They migrate thousands of miles every year and can swim at bursts of speeds up to 22 miles per hour. Compare that to Olympic Champion Michael Phelps, who topped out at 6 miles per hour on his best day. Perhaps the most famous sea turtle of all is Crush, the gnarly surfer dude-like character from Pixar’s 2003 animated film “Finding Nemo.” An even more colorful sea turtle appears on a brand new coin from the island nation of Barbados. The second coin in its popular Underwater World coin series, the Sea Turtle really comes out of his shell on this coin. And what a coin! Struck in three full ounces of 99.9% silver, the massive 50 mm coin depicts a Sea Turtle poking its head and front flippers out of the water in incredible ultra high relief. Enhanced by an antique finish along with selective translucent marine-blue enamel layered over the water portion of the design, the awesome 3D effect makes it look like the turtle is half in and half out of the water on the very surface of your coin!
