Tokelau is a tropical island country located in the southern Pacific Ocean. The nation consists of three tropical coral atolls, and Swains Island, which is governed separately as a part of American Samoa. The combined land area of the islands is just 4 square miles and the population numbers just 1,400 people.

Barracuda are a species of ray-finned fish known for their large size, fearsome appearance, and ferocious behavior. Found only in saltwater, the barracuda is located in tropical and subtropical waters around the world from the eastern Atlantic Ocean to the Red Sea and Caribbean Sea. The fearsome appearance of the barracuda comes from the prominent, sharp-edged fanged teeth it possess that give it the appearance of a massive piranha.
On the reverse of the 2017 1 oz Tokelau Silver Barracuda Coin is the image of a school of barracuda swimming through the tropical waters of the South Pacific. Engravings include the nation of issue below the design field, as well as the name of the species represented in both English and the native Tokelau tongue (Tokelauan).
The obverse of all Silver Barracuda coins include the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, which was created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley as the fourth-generation image of Her Majesty. Also included below the Queen’s effigy is the badge of Tokelau, which features the motto “Tokelau mot e Atua,” which translates into English as “Tokelau for the Almighty.”
