This large .925 sterling silver $2 proof coin struck by the Franklin Mint was not issued for circulation, but output only for collectors. The stunning reverse shows two scarlet flamingos against a setting sun. A bust of Queen Elizabeth II graces the obverse. Flamingos, famous for their bright pink feathers, stilt-like legs and S-shaped neck were once on the decline in the Caribbean. After government protection and preservation, the population now tops 80,000. Proof quality. Our choice of date.
