The strategic geographic location of Cabo Verde, an archipelago situated between three continents, has always opened the doors to maritime navigation.

Due to lack of natural resources and to constant droughts, emigration emerged as an alternative for many Cabo Verdeans. Whether to America, attracted by the dollar, to Europe or, more recently, to Africa, Cabo Verdeans almost always left by sea. 

Today, with over a million people spread across the four corners of the world, to the natives of Cabo Verde, ships represent more than a mere means of transportation: it is the symbol of having to leave and one day return.

Due to our secular history, Banco de Cabo Verde presents this superb collection of coins which includes the beloved Turtle. Turtles are also fighting for survival and, for this reason, are a protected species in Cabo Verde.
