First Colored Titanium coin EVER produced for Fiji!
- Showcasing Fiji’s beautiful national bird, the Collared Lory
- Titanium 7.5k Issue Limit – Proof Sterling Silver 2k Issue Limit
- Produced in Britain by Pobjoy Mint manufacturer of luxury coins
Pobjoy Mint is delighted to be able to add Fiji as a new country issuing coloured Titanium coins. The first of these coins features the National bird of Fiji – the Collared Lory. The design on the coin features a beautiful pair of collared Lories perched on a tree branches. The hardest part of this design was to capture and bring to life the texture of the Lory’s feathers and the end result is really appealing.
As Titanium reacts differently with every strike, each Collared Lory coin is technically different and varies slightly in color. 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.
Behind the Coin
The Collared Lory is the national bird of Fiji and is endemic to the Islands and is known locally as Kula. It is the only rainforest bird to have successfully adapted to urban landscapes. The Collared Lory has greenish upper parts, bright scarlet chest and a face with a purple crown. There is also slight sexual dimorphism within the species, with the males tending to be more vibrant in color than the females. The Lory is usually found in pairs or small groups and grows to around 20cm in height feeding on a diet of fruit seeds, nectar and blossoms.
The Collared Lory primarily nests in hollow trees such as coconut palms but have been found nesting inside rotten coconuts that are still attached to the tree. They typically have a clutch of two eggs that they incubate for approximately 30 days and will fiercely defend.
