2018 Reef Fish: Triggerfish

A new series from the New Zealand Mint, Reef Fish looks at the beautiful and rich undersea world of the reef ecosystem through its colourful fish species. This first coin has the the gorgeous Triggerfish on it, one notorious in the marine aquarium trade for its bad temper. They inhabit tropical and subtropical oceans throughout the world, with the greatest species richness in the Indo-Pacific. Most are found in relatively shallow, coastal habitats, especially at coral reefs.

This 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.
