Green Turtle
The green sea turtle (Chelonia mydas), also known as the green turtle, black (sea) turtle, or Pacific green turtle, is a large sea turtle of the family Cheloniidae. Its range extends throughout tropical and subtropical seas around the world, with two distinct populations in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
Like other sea turtles, green sea turtles migrate long distances between feeding grounds and hatching beaches. Many islands worldwide are known as Turtle Island due to green sea turtles nesting on their beaches.
C. mydas is listed as endangered by the IUCN and CITES and is protected from exploitation in most countries. It is illegal to collect, harm or kill them. In addition, many countries have laws and ordinances to protect nesting areas. However, turtles are still in danger because of several human practices. In some countries, turtles and their eggs are hunted for food. Pollution indirectly harms turtles at both population and individual scales. Many turtles die caught in fishing nets. Also, real estate development often causes habitat loss by eliminating nesting beaches.

Measuring an expansive 38.61mm, the large flan of the 2014 $100 Green Sea Turtle 1oz Gold Proof forms the perfect canvas for the spellbinding reverse design. Capturing the compelling cornucopia of colours of this astonishing work of nature, the glorious full-colour design has been created in fully struck-up relief. The contrast with the glittering surface of this 1oz Gold Proof is truly breathtaking. Sure to command the attention of those enchanted by the unparalleled beauty, prestige and mystique underpinning the world’s favourite precious metal, there is no doubt that the tiny mintage will be blown away at super speed. Indeed, one need only remember the lightning fast sell-out of the first three coins of the Endangered & Extinct Series to understand the need for immediate action.
