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 coin! The coin is struck in an antique finish to pay tribute to the ancient coins of the past. Fun Fact: Many turtles and tortoises enjoy being rubbed or scratched, particularly on their necks, and they will often stretch their necks right out to allow you to hit the right spot! This incredible coin is limited to only 999 pieces, so while the tortoise moves slowly, the sales of these will not! Secure yours before they crawl away!
