As Titanium reacts differently with every strike, each Green Turtle coin is technically different and varies slightly in color. There is also a lined effect that is present on the coins which is unique to this metal.

Green Turtles (Chelonia mydas) are a large sea turtle which take their name from the fat found beneath their carapace. Despite their name, these turtles' shells are brown to black in color. These large migratory herbivores often inhabit shallow lagoons but also travel long distances between feeding and nesting grounds.

One of the places Green Turtles can be found nesting is on the beaches of the Chagos Islands and specifically Diego Garcia which is part of the British Indian Ocean Territory. Between 400 and 800 of these majestic animals nest annually throughout the Chagos and are well protected. This is most evident in Diego Garcia where approximately 50% of the whole island is a protected nature reserve. It is here that the adult females can lay their eggs without the threat of human intervention.

The Green Turtle’s diet changes as it grows. As a Juvenile they are carnivorous but as they mature their diet changes to include more and more vegetation and fully mature adults are often strict herbivores. The turtles feeding trips usually last about 5 minutes but they can actually hold their breath for up to 5 hours.
