Obverse

Trinidad and Tobago's coat of arms: a ship's wheel in front of a fruited coconut palm. Beneath the wheel is the wreath which holds the mantle in place. The Helm is a helmet facing front. The devices on the Shield are the two humming birds. The three gold ships represent the three ships of Columbus. The Supporters are a Scarlet Ibis (the national bird of Trinidad) on the left and, a Cocrico (the national bird of Tobago) on the right. The Three Peaks commemorated both Columbus' decision to name Trinidad after the Blessed Trinity and the three Peaks of the Southern mountain range, called the "Three Sisters" on the horizon. Inscribed on the motto scroll are the words: "Together we aspire; together we achieve"

Comments

On July 1, 2017 the metal composition of the 25 cents changed into a steel core with a copper-nickel overlay, which makes this coin magnetic.
Because of the metal composition change this coin will have a new KM number. Although it's likely to be KM# 32a only Krause can assign a KM# number so we have to wait till Krause officially assigns this number to the coin and unfortunately this could take a few more years.

Since this change took place in the middle of the year it's likely the 2017 coin exists in old and new metal composition, so be aware to tick the right entry when adding a 2017 coin, especially since there are several other entries in between.
