Manta Rays are incredibly majestic creatures of the blue and as a tribute to their immense size yet graceful nature Pobjoy Mint is proud to release this awesome coin in both Titanium and Cupro Nickel. The design shows a Manta Ray skimming above the coral covered ocean floor followed by a group of Remoras. The denomination shown is £2.

The obverse features the Pobjoy exclusive effigy design of HM Queen Elizabeth II in exceptional detail. As Titanium reacts differently with every strike each of the 7,500 Titanium coins are technically different and vary slightly in color. There is also a lined effect that is present on the coins which is unique to this metal.



Manta Rays are found circumtropically in warm, temperate waters and are large rays with triangular pectoral fins, horn-shaped cephalic fins and gaping forward-facing mouths. They are pelagic filter feeders that consume large quantities of Zooplankton, which they collect by swimming mouth-open through the water. Manta Rays are gentle giants that, despite their huge size (up to seven meters across!!), pose no risk to humans. This is in contradiction to Sting Rays, which can deliver a nasty sting.

Humans in fact are the greatest risk to the Rays and they are now considered vulnerable due to over-fishing. They often get tangled in nets as they are unable to swim backwards. Once entangled, they drown due to their constant requirement of flushing oxygen rich water over their gills.

The Titanium coin is protected by an acrylic capsule and then packaged in a beautiful red box and includes a Certificate of Authenticity. The Unc. Cupro Nickel Coin is shipped in a Pobjoy Mint Pouch.

The Coconut Crab is the world’s largest land arthropod and an incredibly impressive looking crab. These crabs are widely found in the British Indian Ocean Territory, so we found it more than appropriate to issue this coin on their behalf. The design shows two large coconut crabs, one on the floor feasting on the flesh of a coconut and the other climbing a coconut palm. The denomination shown is £2, available in Titanium and Cupro Nickel.

Coconut crabs are famous for their massive size, weighing over four kilograms and with a leg span that can reach over one meter. This makes these crabs the largest land-living Arthropod in the world. They are found throughout Indonesia, the Indian Ocean and parts of the Pacific. Although their name suggests that they primarily feed on Coconuts, this is not the case and coconuts make up as small proportion of their diet. They can, however, be found climbing the Coconut Palms and occasionally using a broken coconut shells as protection. Recent footage has shown a coconut crab hunting a sea bird!

Unfortunately Coconut crabs have been extensively hunted on islands where there is a human population as their flesh is considered both a delicacy and an aphrodisiac. When the tables are turned and they manage to pinch a human, they can cause considerable pain and will not release their grip for a long time. One technique used to free someone from their powerful grip is to tickle their underbelly!
