The Government of the British Virgin Islands is advising the public, especially coin collectors, that a ‘coin’ claiming to be issued in the name of the British Virgin Islands, has been offered for sale to coin dealers and the general public.

The coins are being sold from the website http://coinsking.ru/ and feature animals from Novosibirsk Zoo and Sibir Hockey Club in Russia. The coins are also being sold by two dealers on Ebay.

All are advised that these ‘coins’ have never been approved by the Government, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office nor Her Majesty the Queen.
