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.

Hefty companion

Just like the one ounce versions but thicker and heftier. Fun to compare with the lighter version. People have a tough time realizing the weight is the only difference.

2 Oz Turtle is a Beauty

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

I've been collecting the 1 oz hawksbill turtles for a couple of years because of the low premium and beautiful design. When I saw they had a 2 oz, I had to get some. Same design as the 1 oz but has the nice heft of a 2 oz coin. Will be adding more of these.

  • Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Speechless!

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

Just received it and WOW! mirror finish flawless design and...just...WOW! I'm very impressed with these. As soon as I can I'm buying 10 more! Plus, even if silver is low 5 years from now, you can still sell it at a gain because of the low mintage. Just look at similar coins values and what people are paying. 3 year old American Eagles sell for 5-7x as much as what the silvers worth every day. Amazing investment
