St. Helena & Ascension 50-PENCE (KM5) Sea Turtle

There are seven species of Marine turtles (aka Sea turtles), and most of them are headed for extinction.

This large equilaterally-curved heptagon (7-sided) coin was issued in 1984 only. "Equilaterally-curved" means if you placed a compass point on one of the seven apexes (points), it would trace out the curve of the opposite side. This makes for a 7-sided coin that can actually roll along on its edge.
