Description

We are delighted to be able to add Fiji as a new country featuring their National bird – 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.

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 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.
