Sea Turtle
Sea turtles (superfamily Chelonioidea), sometimes called marine turtles, are reptiles of the order Testudines. The seven extant species of sea turtles are: the green, loggerhead, Kemp's ridley, olive ridley, hawksbill, flatback, and leatherback. The majority of a sea turtle's body is protected by its shell. The turtle's shell is divided into two sections: carapace (the dorsal portion) and plastron (the ventral portion). The shell is made up of smaller plates called scutes. The leatherback is the only sea turtle that does not have a hard shell. Instead, it bears a mosaic of bony plates beneath its leathery skin. In general, sea turtles have a more fusiform body plan than their terrestrial or freshwater counterparts. The reduced volume of a fusiform body means sea turtles can not retract their head, legs, and arms into their shells for protection like other turtles can. However this more stream-line body plan reduces drag in the water and allows the turtle to swim more easily. The leatherback is the largest species of sea turtle. Measuring 2–3 meters (6–9 ft) in length, and 1-1.5 m (3–5 ft) in width, weighing up to 700 kilograms (1500 lb). Other species are smaller, being mostly 60–120 cm (2–4 ft) and proportionally narrower.


The reverse of the coin depicts a beautiful White Rhodium plated Turtle. On top of the reverse, the inscriptions: “PRECIOUS NATURE” – the name of the series, “SEA TURTLE” – the name of the coin and “Black Premium Collection”. On the bottom, the inscriptions: “2018” – the year of issue and “.999 FINE SILVER 1 KG” – the the fineness of the silver and the weight of the coin. The coin's features the Coat of Arms of Benin and the inscriptions: “REPUBLIQUE DU BENIN” – the issuing country and “10000 FRANCS CFA” – the face value.
