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.
Can I buy these 2015 Silver coins at the Silver spot price?
Silver coins, including these Hawksbill Turtle Silver coins, can never be bought at the Silver spot price. The Silver spot price is the base price for one ounce of raw Silver, and this amount is always shown in U.S. dollars. When you buy Silver coins, the Silver price you pay includes the cost of fabrication, distribution, a nominal dealer fee and any numismatic or collector value, and this added price is known as the premium. The closer the price of 1 oz Silver bullion is to the Silver spot price, the better when buying Silver coins for investment.
