Homopus areolatus

The 2018 Gold R1 of the South African Mint continues the Reptiles of South Africa series.

The Parrot Beaked Tortoise, or Padloper, is a small tortoise indigenous to South Africa, and I am sure that most people have seen these interesting critters at some or other point. Wikipedia.

The 24 carat 1/10 Oz Gold coin is available in single units.
