16. In Pantone's proprietary color system, maybe.

 

But the colors "coral" and "salmon" are not objective phenomena. I imagine if you put a chunk of coral reef next to a salmon filet you would detect a color difference. But even then it depends on what kind of coral and what kind of salmon (and what kind of light you are viewing them in).

Color, and our perception of it, is dependent on many more factors than what a paint manufacturer or lipstick maker—or a color company in a yearly promotion to hype its brand—names its products. Color in real life is subjective.

If you are a designer, or a decorator, you know that.
