Description

It has proved difficult to decide on which animal to showcase on 2018 for Fiji, as the Islands have such a beautiful and diverse selection of flora and fauna. We came to the conclusion that the Yellow Tree frog captures the essence of the rainforest with its vivid colours and unusual appearance. The design on the reverse features a Yellow Tree Frog resting on some leaves.

The Fiji Tree Frog or Platymantis vitiensis is a tree-dwelling frog that is endemic to Fiji. This little frog reaches a maximum size of 60mm and can be found in an array of different colours, from a creamy grey to a vivid yellow.  In the wild, these frogs live close to rivers and streams and prefer living amongst secluded foliage. They are good swimmers, climbers and can jump quite a distance to evade predators!

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.

These frogs are nocturnal animals and both forage for food and look for a partner to reproduce at night and then lay their eggs in leaf axils, particularly of Pandanus trees. Fiji’s endemic frogs are terrestrial breeders and Miniature frogs hatch from the eggs rather than tadpoles.

Although these frogs are not currently considered endangered, they are confined to small pockets of forest on small islands so are inherently at risk from deforestation and other introduced predators.
