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

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.

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.
