Pobjoy Mint is delighted to announce the release of the penultimate coin in the series which feature the extraordinary flamingos on behalf of the British Virgin Islands.
The fifth coin in the series features the Andean Flamingo which is one of the rarest flamingos in the world. The breed has a pale pink body and brighter underparts, a deep pink lower neck, breast and wing coverts. It is the only species with yellow legs and three-toed feet.
The coin depicts an adult Andean Flamingo with its chick. The coin has been produced in Virenium®, a metal developed by Pobjoy Mint which is light gold in colour. The obverse of the coin features the exclusive Pobjoy Mint effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
*This coin is sold in a round capsule inside a blue pouch. If purchased with an album no pouch will be supplied. If more than 14+ coins have been purchased, please note no pouches will be included and your coins will be dispatched in tubes.**
Flamingos are monogamous birds that lay just a single egg each year and if that egg is lost or damaged they do not lay a replacement. Flamingo chicks are born grey or white and also with a straight bill which becomes curved after a few months.
The Flamingo is probably one of the most easily recognisable birds in the world. The tropical wading birds have long legs, long curvy necks and, most distinctively, they are pink. They are very social birds and live in colonies that can contain thousands of birds. These large colonies help the flamingos avoid predators (we all know the saying “safety in numbers”) and using scarce nesting sites more efficiently.
Pobjoy Mint aims to dispatch all in stock items within 48 hours.
