Exquisite Birds of Paradise on Love is Precious coin for 2020

We are delighted to introduce the 2020 coin in our annual Love is Precious Silver Coin Collection. This year we have chosen to feature the Birds of Paradise, showing the male bird undertaking his unique courtship dance with his elaborate plumage on full display!

Famous for their showmanship: wildly extravagant plumage, complex vocal arrangements and shape-shifting dance moves they cease to look anything like a bird, becoming instead a hopping, snapping, geometric abstraction. It’s one of the most bizarre and enthralling displays in the entire animal kingdom.

This 1oz silver coin features both birds, representing lovers, surrounded by a myriad of flowers. Above them is a red heart- shaped genuine cubic zirconia set into the coin. Around the edge the inscription Love is Precious is finely engraved into an ornate border design.

The coin is packaged in a printed box, featuring a beautiful floral pattern incorporating the striking male bird. The box opens to reveal an elegant heart-shaped silver coin case. The matching Certificate of Authenticity can be found inside this packaging and features the Khalil Gibran quote: “Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit”.

A treasured keepsake for love in your life, or gift one for anniversaries, weddings or engagements, but with a limited availability of only 3,000 coins this one will fly!
