Reef Fish
Coral reef fish are fish which live amongst or in close relation to coral reefs. Coral reefs form complex ecosystems with tremendous biodiversity. Among the myriad inhabitants, the fish stand out as colourful and interesting to watch. Hundreds of species can exist in a small area of a healthy reef, many of them hidden or well camouflaged. Reef fish have developed many ingenious specialisations adapted to survival on the reefs. Coral reefs occupy less than one percent of the surface area of the world oceans, but still they provide a home for 25 percent of all marine fish species. Reef habitats are a sharp contrast to the open water habitats that make up the other 99% of the world oceans. However, loss and degradation of coral reef habitat, increasing pollution, and overfishing including the use of destructive fishing practices, are threatening the survival of the coral reefs and the associated reef fish.

 
Design

The reverse of the coin artistically combines the exquisitely coloured Triggerfish amongst engraved coral in its native reef habitat. The design also incorporates an ultra-gloss effect to give the Triggerfish a unique “wet” look. On the bottom of the reverse, the inscription: “1 oz 999 Fine Silver” – the weight of the coin and the fineness of the Silver. The obverse of the coin depicts the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the inscriptions: “ELIZABETH II” – the name of the Queen, “NIUE” – the issuing country, “TWO DOLLARS” – the face value and “2018” – the year of issue.
