"The South African government has established a network of marine protected areas (MPAs) to conserve South Africa’s offshore biodiversity and ensure the sustainable use of its marine resources.
In 2013, this four-coin sterling-silver series featured the iSimangaliso MPA in the Delagoa bioregion, followed by the KwaZulu-Natal MPAs in 2014. In 2015, the MPAs in the Agulhas bioregion were denoted and in 2016 aspects of the south-western Cape bioregion were portrayed. This theme concludes in 2017 with South Africa’s first offshore MPA namely the Prince Edward Islands MPA consisting of Prince Edward and Marion Islands located in the southern Indian Ocean, halfway between South Africa and Antarctica."
