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 veiled chameleon is a remarkable species that hails from the arid regions of Yemen and Saudi Arabia. The most notable feature is a large, elaborate bony protrusion atop its head, which is called a casque. Both males and females sport this fancy headgear, which allegedly serves to channel water droplets down into the reptiles’ mouths, a crucial adaptation in their dry habitats.

Shift of colours: The Chameleon
First ever 3 oz silver coin with thermochromic enamel colour.

Colour change in chameleons has functions in camouflage, but most commonly in social signaling and in reactions to temperature.

Through the Thermochromic Effect, the enamel colour changes its hues and brightness once it reaches body temperature.

In contrast, the obverse shows the embossed chameleon alongside the coat of arms of Barbados in Pure Silver.

Experience one of nature’s most delicate moments, as a monarch butterfly circles around an aster bloom.

What a joy to spot this splendid creature! Delicate and graceful, the gorgeous monarch butterfly flits from one plant to the next, dancing merrily through the sky in search of the perfect flower—like the standout bloom on this coin’s interactive reverse. A monarch butterfly may travel up to 5,000 kilometres during its two-way migration, an astounding feat for one so small and fragile! It truly is a wonder to observe, both in nature and on this fine silver movement coin, as it selects one special flower out of the millions it has passed over.

Tilt the coin to make the monarch fly–the moment is fleeting and full of magic.
Your coin’s reverse features two 3D elements that have each been cast in sterling silver (92.5% pure): a rose-gold plated aster flower, and a gold-plated monarch butterfly (this is the species’ first appearance on a movement coin).
Tilt the coin and watch as the gravity-activated monarch circles around the aster flower. Both feature an incredible number of details – just look at the monarch’s wing pattern.

Like all the coins in The Language of Flowers series, The Chamomile features an imprint of real flowers. Faithful to the tiniest detail, they are pressed using a special technique that captures them in their natural state. In the language of flowers, chamomile signifies ‘strength in difficult situations’ and ‘energy in adversity”. This makes perfect sense given chamomile’s numerous healing and magical properties, uplifting scent and delightful daisy-like flowers.

Known to the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans and used for centuries to heal a wide range of maladies, chamomile was believed by the Anglo-Saxons to be one of nine sacred herbs with special powers to fend off illness and evil. This unassuming yet powerful herb has a history of use in magic spells for peace, purification, protection and self-esteem. It is also said to have magical abilities to attract luck, love and prosperity and to release the pain of lost love and help people let go of grudges, guilt and anger. Humans are not alone in enjoying the many benefits of chamomile, as the beautifully scented, easy-growing herb is also known as the ‘plant doctor’ and if placed next to ailing or weak plants is thought to help strengthen them.

Next to an ornamental side image of chamomiles, which is stylishly printed in colour, the coin’s reverse features imprints of real chamomiles in bloom. On the coin’s obverse, chamomile flowers adorn the hair of a determined-looking young woman who symbolises vitality. On her shoulder sits a phoenix, a mythical bird that has stood for renewal and rebirth since ancient times. Beyond her the silhouette of a spear is visible.
