The British Indian Ocean Territory (BIOT) is an overseas territory of the United Kingdom situated in the Indian Ocean halfway between Tanzania and Indonesia, and directly south of the Maldives. The territory comprises the seven atolls of the Chagos Archipelago with over 1,000 individual islands – many of which are very small.

The British Indian Ocean Territory (BIOT) plays a crucial role as a foraging ground for immature sea turtles that feed in the shallow lagoons. Ongoing conservation work has shown that the sea turtles remain in these environments for many years before they travel back to their natal nesting areas to breed as adults.

Unfortunately, the sea turtle population was exploited for many years as a source of food and jewelry trade from the local islanders and passing merchant ships. Until relatively recently, the UK Government created the world’s largest no-take marine protected area (MPA) in 2010 within the British Indian Ocean Territory (BIOT) which includes the some of the world’s most pristine tropical coral reefs along with the 58 islands of the archipelago that are native to multiple endangered species such as the hawksbill and green sea turtle. Fast forward to today and with the help of the UK Government it is estimated that around 1,000 adults of both species – the hawksbill and green sea turtle nest annually. This has greatly helped with the recent increase of population for both the hawksbill and green sea turtle.

Just okay

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

In your hand this coin looks just like it does in the photos. Her Majesty is just not looking her best here. As another reviewer remarked, it looks like the strike wasn't too good, and I bought the Mint Direct Premier coin, so the rest are at least as bad. Even the edge has only slight a reed. Very low relief. This particular mint is not my favorite.

Decision Between This Coin and the Fiji Taku Turtle

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

No regrets on placing this order! It was released the same week as the 2020 Fiji Turtle, and it was easy to choose this newer 2020 Virgin Island sea turtle design when comparing. Great quality, picked up 10! Clean & simple, uncomplicated coin design that will be impossible for me to part with.


  • Pros
  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Bottom Line
  • Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Better online than in person

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

I liked how it looked online but when I received it the design wasn't as good as it looked online. Overall it has little to no details and over a missed opportunity.


  • Bottom Line
  • No, I would not recommend this to a friend
