Pobjoy Mint’s coloured Titanium coins have proved to be a great success and to continue the series we are delighted announce the release of a new Pink Titanium coin on behalf of the British Virgin Islands Government which features the majestic Flamingo.

Flamingos are a type of wading bird famous for its bright pink feathers, stilt-like legs and S-shaped neck.  When a flamingo spots a potential meal in the shallow water in which it is wading, it plunges its head into the water, twists it upside down, and scoops the fish using its upper beak like a shovel.  Flamingos filter feed on brine shrimp and blue-green algae and it is the carotenoids in their diet that produces their unique colour.

Flamingos often stand on one leg, the other leg tucked beneath the body.  The reason for this is not fully understood but research indicates that standing on one leg may allow the birds to conserve more body heat, given that they spend a significant amount of time wading in cold water.  Flamingos are very social birds and live in colonies whose population can number in the thousands.  These large colonies are believed to serve three purposes: avoiding predators, maximising food intake and using scarce nesting sites more efficiently.

The design on the coin features a resplendent flamingo wading in shallow water with a flock of flamingos in the background.  The obverse of the coin features an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS.  The coin has been produced in Pink Titanium and is also available in Cupro Nickel and Proof Sterling Silver.  Titanium is exceptionally difficult to strike and we promote our Titanium coins as being unique as, due to the fact they are difficult to strike and also with the way the coloured Titanium reacts when striking, no Titanium coin is exactly the same.  Also there is a lined effect that is present on the coins which is also unique to Titanium metal.

Your benefits:
• Extremely high international collector demand
• Highly appreciated in The Investing in Collectible Coins
• Present this beautiful coin to your loved one for any occasions or a great business gift
