It is difficult not to notice that flamingos seem to be everywhere at the moment, on every item you can possibly imagine. Pobjoy Mint are therefore excited to announce the release of the first in a series of coins which feature this spectacular bird on behalf of the British Virgin Islands.
The first coin of the set concentrates on the American Flamingo which is a large species also known as the Caribbean Flamingo. The coin shows an adult flamingo standing on one leg with a flock of flamingos in the background. Produced in Virenium®, a metal developed by Pobjoy Mint which is light gold in colour, the coin also displays 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 ‘flamengo’ 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.
