The Starfish has appeared on the Bahamian 1-cent coin from the beginning of the Bahama's own coinage in 1966. In 2006, they switched to a 3-starfish design (KM 218.1), then in 2009 the coin size was reduced in size by a couple millimeters.
Starfish are members of the Phylum Echinodermata, which makes them quite distinct from other animal types in the Coin Zoo.
