This stunning ultra high relief coin has its beginnings to a coin that was struck over 2500 years ago. The turtle was used during ancient Greek times as a monetary symbol and was struck on coins that were first made on the island of Aegina in the south of Greece. Today, the original ancient turtle coins are highly prized and extremely valuable. Do you know the difference between a turtle and a tortoise? Both are reptiles with bodies encased in a bony shell.
But compared to turtles which live in water and have flippers a tortoise is an exclusive land animal with elephant-like hind legs and cant swim. The tortoises iconic shell that they call their home stretches unbelievably high from the surface of the coin.
Its legs and head combined with his shell make it look like the tortoise is walking across the surface.
