Although they have a wide distribution throughout the world's tropical regions, Hawksbill Turtles are considered critically endangered due to human fishing practices. Taku grow up to a metre in length and a weight of 80kg, although the heaviest on record weighed 127kg. Obverse The obverse of the coin features the Raphael Maklouf effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, sovereign of the Commonwealth and Fiji. Reverse The reverse features a Taku with a stylized shell pattern swimming through the waters of the Pacific Ocean along with an engraved heading and the coin's metal quality and weight
