Hawksbill turtles are found throughout the tropical waters of the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans. Named for their narrow, pointed beak, they are also recognizable by a distinctive pattern of overlapping scales on their exquisitely colored and patterned shells. This species typically avoids deep waters, preferring coastlines and coral reefs where they can find sponges, a primary food source for these omnivores.

Beautiful creatures, they make incredible migrations in order to move from feeding sites to tropical beaches that often serve as nesting grounds. Hawksbill turtles come to New Zealand every year from Fiji; although they’ve been sighted as far south as Cook Strait, they are mostly seen in the upper North Island of New Zealand in the clear, shallow waters of the island shelve.

Like many sea turtles, hawksbills are a critically endangered species due mostly to human impact. Hawksbill eggs are still eaten around the world despite the turtle’s international protected status, and they are often killed for their flesh and their stunning shells that are highly valuable in some marketplaces.

Incredible coin and service

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

I started purchasing precious metal in September of 2104. I had no knowledge metals, spot prices or the market at all. With apmex's team as a small time investor I have been able to purchase over 12000 dollars in high value coins at great spot prices under guidance. I could not not have done this without them!! They are the best, when I shopped around with other companies they weren't interested in helping small time investors but the team at apmex treats me like I invest 1000's with each purchase no matter how big or small the buy. I will buy from them again and again and recommend them to everyone I know. Greg Martin

Beautiful addition to collection

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

I bought the coin as an addition to my daughter's collection, she has each year. I think the coin is a beauty and is worth the value. Low premium over spot, attractive design, we'll worth it. Besides my daughter's face is like Christmas morning when she gets to unbox APMEX products. No complaints whatsoever!
