CIT had released the first Sand Dollar in 2017. The coin actually has a skeleton of a sea urchin. However, when these sea urchins are exposed to sunlight for a long time, they start shining like old Spanish or American silver dollars. These second sand dollar coin, to be released in 2019 is technologically more advanced. The obverse features a delicate design and the surfaces have a silk finish. The uneven rim is thinner towards the edge and the coin has five oval cut-outs.
