Paradise Bird & Lion Fish Papua New Guinea Authentic Coin Charm 2 Toea for Jewelry and Craft Making

The front of the coin bears the Papua New Guinea national emblem, a paradise bird on a Dundu, and a ceremonial drum with a spear behind. The date of mintage is below, the name of the country above.

The back of the coin bears a lion fish (also called scorpion fish) (Pterois volitans) below the denomination. This fish can be found in most reefs around Papua-New Guinea. It is highly invasive in the Caribbean and US West Atlantic coasts probably due to aquarium trade.
