The Hawksbill turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata bissa), or locally named Taku, is one of two main turtle species of the South Pacific island nation of Fiji. Although they have a wide distribution throughout the world's tropical regions, Hawksbill Turtles are considered critically endangered due to human fishing practises. Taku grow up to a metre in length and a weight of 80 kg, although the heaviest on record weighed 127 kg.
The obverse of the coin features the coat of arms of Fiji, denomination, year and name of the country.
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.
