Colonies of seahorses have been found in sheltered marine environments around the world that include, but are not limited to seagrass beds, estuaries, and mangroves.

There are a total of 46 known subspecies of seahorses in the world today. The animals range in size from as small as 5/8 inch to 14 inches and represent one of the worst swimming species in the ocean. The dwarf seahorse is the slowest-moving species of fish in the world and can only cover 5 feet in one hour.
The obverse side of 2020 Samoa Seahorse Silver Coins depicts a seahorse in right-profile relief. In this design, the seahorse is featured upright with a few bubbles in front of the animal and stylized waves below the seahorse. The seahorse moves by swimming upright using a dorsal fin to propel themselves forward.
