Sterling Silver Coin Celebrates the Wildlife of the Archipelago
- Featuring wildlife found on the British Virgin Islands!
- Limited to 2k Proof Sterling Silver coins worldwide!
- Exclusive Pobjoy Portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II
To celebrate the British Virgin Islands Archipelago and the wildlife that inhabits it, Pobjoy Mint is proud to launch this coin featuring a beautiful map of the islands. We have also superimposed some of the wildlife from the archipelago over the map. This includes an iguana, a flamingo, a brown pelican and a few crustaceans for good measure – making this coin a desirable piece for any lover of the natural world!
The obverse features the Pobjoy exclusive effigy design of HM Queen Elizabeth II in exceptional detail. In order to maintain the exclusivity of this piece, just 2,000 of the Proof Sterling Silver coins will be produced and 10,000 of the Uncirculated Cupro Nickel.
Behind the Coin
The British Virgin Islands is a British Overseas Territory, located in the Caribbean and are part of the Virgin Islands archipelago. The main islands in the Territory are Tortola, Anegada, Virgin Gorda and Jost Van Dyk. There are a total of around 60 islands in the Territory. The Islanders are considered British Citizens and have been ruled by the British monarchy since Tortola was captured from the Dutch in 1672.
The British Virgin Islands are home to many spectacular creatures. Iguanas can be found basking in the sun across the islands which makes a popular photo opportunity for tourists. You can also see a colony of pink flamingos wading in the waters on Anegada. We have also included a brown pelican on the right with its two-plus metre wings extended for flight.
