We are delighted to announce the release of a brand new coin in outstanding Green Titanium issued on behalf of the British Virgin Islands Government featuring the Hummingbird.

Hummingbirds are a diverse family of 320 species and they can mostly be found throughout the Americas. The smallest of all is the tiny bee hummingbird, Mellisuga helenae, weighing less than 2.5grams. They are among the world’s smallest bird species measuring 3 to 5 inches.

Their English name derives from the characteristic hum made by their rapid wing beats which flap at high frequencies audible to humans. They can fly at speeds exceeding 15 meters/second (54 km/h; 34 mph) and they can also fly backwards, and are the only group of birds able to do so.

This stunning coin has been produced in Green Titanium to mimic the colouring of the Green-throated Carib, which is one of the hummingbird species that can be commonly found in the British Virgin Islands. The coin is also available in Uncirculated Cupro Nickel.
