Pobjoy Mint are excited to announce the release of the second coin in a series of coins which feature James's Flamingo on behalf of the British Virgin Islands.
Named after Harry Berkeley James, a British naturalist who studied the bird, the species was thought to be extinct until a remote population was discovered in 1956. The plumage of this species is very pale pink with bright carmine streaks. The coin features two adult James' Flamingos with one sifting through the water for food.
The coin has been produced in Virenium®, a metal developed by Pobjoy Mint which is light gold in colour. The coin is available will the main flamingo in full colour which really shows the magnificent plumage to perfection. The obverse of the coin features the exclusive Pobjoy Mint effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
The word ‘flamingo’ comes from the Portuguese/Spanish ‘flamingo’ meaning ‘flame-coloured’ which is particularly apt for this bird with its pink or reddish colour coming from carotenoids in their diet of animal or plant plankton. Flamingos are very social birds who live in colonies which can number in the thousands. Flamingos can often be seen standing on one leg while the other is tucked beneath their body. There are six existing flamingo species which are recognised by most sources and it is these six species that will feature on this series of coins.
Pobjoy Mint aims to dispatch all in stock items within 48 hours.
