One of the most popular birds has always been the Flamingo. These creatures stand out thanks to their extremely long legs, beautiful pink feathers, and S-shaped necks. While the Caribbean Flamingo is the most well-known, there are five other species of these unique birds found throughout the world. Together, they form a genus known as Phoenicopterus.

If you’ve never invested in platinum before, these 2021 Barbados Platinum Flamingo Coins could be a great place to start. Platinum is priced much higher than silver, but because these coins only weigh 1/10 of an ounce, they could be a nice way to test out this popular precious metal.

The obverse of 2021 1/10 oz Barbados Flamingo Coins depicts two Flamingos on foot. One is standing upright, while the other bends towards the ground. In the background, we can see a few palm trees. Along the rim are the words Barbados Flamingo, as well as the year and denomination.
On the reverse of the 2021 1/10 oz Platinum Flamingo Coin is the Barbados coat of arms. This design is from 1966 and includes a shield propped up by a dolphin and a pelican. Also included is the country’s motto Pride and Industry. Inscribed along the border are the words Barbados, 1/10 oz, Pt .999.
Whether you see them in the wild or at the zoo, you will have no trouble recognizing a Flamingo. These beautiful birds have several stand-out features. The most notable is their pink feathers, which they actually are not born with. Baby Flamingos are naturally grey, but their diet of carotene-rich foods turns their feathers a pink hue over time. Also of note are their stunning necks shaped like an S. Lastly, when these birds stand, you’ll see their extremely long legs and ankles that bend backward. All in all, there is something both silly and charming about these birds. They’re impossible not to love.
