Coin Information

The bird of paradise is famously associated with the island of New Guinea. It’s beautiful plumes are used as currency by local tribes and worn as adornments during cultural ceremonies.

A remarkable example is Victoria’s riflebird. Known as the “duwuduwu” to the indigenous Yidinji people, it was recorded by naturalist John Macgillivray in 1848 and subsequently named after the reigning of Queen Victoria.

In color, the male bird’s similarity to the uniforms of contemporary British riflemen is the purported reason for its common title. Velvety black, the plumage includes areas of iridescent greenish blue, purple and bronze which are used to showy effect during its theatrical courtship dance.

This flamboyant display involves a series of nodding, weaving and flapping movements. As a dramatic finale, the bird holds its head high while arching its wings up skyward in a dramatic call for a mate.
