Description

We are delighted to be able to add Fiji as a new country issuing coloured Titanium coins. The first of these coins features the National bird of Fiji – the Collared Lory.

The design on the coin features a beautiful pair of collared Lories perched on tree branches. The hardest part of this design was to capture and bring to life the texture of the Lory’s feathers and the end result is really appealing.

As Titanium reacts differently with every strike, each Collared Lory coin is technically different and varies slightly in colour. There is also a lined effect that is present on the coins which are unique to this metal. The obverse features the Fijian Coat of Arms a heraldic design consisting of a shield with the Cross of St. George, Fijian Warriors, a canoe and a Lion on a stunning proof background.

The collared Lory's is the national bird of Fiji and is endemic to the Islands and is known locally as Kula. It is the only rainforest bird to have successfully adapted to urban landscapes. The Collared Lory has greenish upperparts, bright scarlet chest and a face with a purple crown.  There is also slight Sexual Dimorphis, within the species and the males tend to be more vibrant in colour than the females. The Lory is usually found in pairs or small groups and grows to around 20cm in height feeding on a diet of fruit seeds, nectar and blossoms.
