ECLECTIC NATURE – ROLLER 2022 Cook Islands 1oz silver proof coin
Eclecticism is the combination or mixing of different styles, theories or ideas in order to gain complementary knowledge on a subject. The term comes from the Greek eklektikos, “to choose the best”, and that from eklektos, “picked out, select”. We have embraced this approach of choosing only the best for our 2nd edition of the Eclectic Nature series.
The eye-catching European Roller, with its radiant turquoise and azure plumage, is native to parts of Europe, northern Africa and Asia. Named for the risky dives and somersaults it performs during the display flights in courtship, the European roller is one of the Old-World birds. Its fondness for warm climate causes this long-distance migrant to spend its winters mainly in southern Africa.
The obverse carries the Ian Rank Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II on it and is issued under the authority of the Cook Islands.
