Tree Frog - 2018 Yellow Titanium Coin
- 2018 990 Yellow Titanium $1 Coin
- Issued on behalf of Fiji
- Unique presentation box and certificate
- Also available as: Proof Sterling Silver
It has proved difficult to decide on which animal to showcase on 2018’s Titanium coin 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.
As Titanium reacts differently with every strike, each Yellow Tree Frog coin is technically different and varies slightly in colour. There is also a lined effect that is present on the coins which is unique to this metal. 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.Show more
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!
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.
