The coin features the American Flamingo (also known as the Caribbean Flamingo) which is a large species found in the islands. The design shows two adult flamingos standing in a pool of water with a background that includes a waterfall and palm trees.
Flamingos live in flocks, are very social and can in fact fly. The reason why so many think they can’t fly is because not many are seen doing so. Typically, when flamingos migrate, they do so at night. They prefer to fly with a cloudless sky and favourable tailwinds.
Flamingos remain part of popular culture not only because of their graciousness but also because they tend to live a seemly quiet life in their natural habitat, which happens to be the tropics.
They also devote considerable time to collective displays before, during, and after breeding. Several hundred to several thousand flamingos are all involved simultaneously with ritualised postures and movements to synchronize breeding.
