Five new inhabitants of Australia’s underwater wonder world are featured on Australian Sea Life II – The Reef series.

Making a splash on the first of five new 1/2oz silver proof coins, the Hawksbill Turtle is a beautiful but endangered animal that lives an extraordinary life. Juveniles spend anywhere between five and ten years simply drifting around the ocean until they’re ready to settle down among Australia’s tropical reefs.
