Royal Delft Peacock – Pavo Christatus

Cook Islands 2017 10 Dollars Royal Delft Peacock Pavo Christatus Silver Coin

This mintage has been closed as the license had ended. The actual produced mintage is 250 pcs.

Unique concept coin with a real Royal Delft� earthenware piece inserted. The piece is handmade and hand painted. The motive Peacock h is related to the Netherlands and fits perfectly to Royal Delft�. The bird is painted by Royal Delft painters and a blue stone feather eye inserted.

The peafowl include two Asiatic bird species (the blue or Indian peafowl originally of India and Sri Lanka and the green peafowl of Myanmar, Indochina, and Java) and one African species (the Congo peafowl native only to the Congo Basin) of birds in the genera Pavo and Afropavo of the Phasianidae family, the pheasants and their allies, known for the male’s piercing call and, among the Asiatic species, his extravagant eye-spotted tail covert feathers which he displays as part of a courtship ritual. The term peacock is properly reserved for the male; the female is known as a peahen, and the immature offspring are sometimes called peachicks.
