Scent of Paradise - Coconut.
Coconuts are a member of the palm family. Although a coconut is a stone fruit with only one seed it is incorrectly called a nut. In the tuft of the palm under the armpits of every new formed leaf a coconut grows within approximately 14 months. The coconut is harvested as a green and unripe fruit. The leathery wax coated outer skin turns yellowish when the fruit is ripe. Underneath it has a thick filament layer which again covers a very hard inner pod. For transport reasons the outer skin of the majority of coconuts on sale have been removed.
One assumes that the coconut originates from Melanesia, a pacific island group which lies north-easterly of Australia. The coconut has spread across much of the tropics, probably aided in many cases by seafaring people. It is known that this stone fruit has an extreme high resistance against salt and is therefore widespread. Without losing its germination capacity it can drift in the ocean up until 100 days.
A tropical sandy beach with a turquoise ocean is difficult to imagine without these beautiful Coconut-Palms which can grow up to 30 meters high. This vision and the “Bounty” in the background are shown on this coin.
