Pegasus 1oz Silver Proof Coin Now Available With Pearl Black Finish

Limited to only 2,000 coins worldwide!

The Pobjoy Mint is thrilled to announce that our flagship Pegasus coin is now available with a Pearl Black Finish for the first time. The coin has been issued on behalf of the British Virgin Islands Government, featuring the famous Greek mythological horse, Pegasus.

The design on this brand-new 1oz Proof Fine Silver coin has been produced with a Pearl Black Finish in the center with the Greek (meander) pattern surrounding Pegasus highlighted in Silver and shows the popular horse with its wings widespread. The lustrous “Pearl Black” finish is a special technique adopted by Pobjoy Mint.

Pegasus is one of the best-known creatures in Greek mythology. This winged horse is usually depicted as white in color and was always considered a good-hearted and gentle animal. Throughout his life, Pegasus remained a mysterious creature that symbolized divine inspiration or the journey to heaven. As a reward for his service and loyalty, Zeus honored him with special immortality, turning him into a constellation on the last day of his life.

The story of Pegasus begins when Perseus is sent to kill one of the three GorgonsMedusa, who had writhing snakes instead of hair. It was said that anyone unfortunate enough to gaze on her face would turn to stone. The god Hermes and the goddess Athena came to aid Perseus with special gifts, including a shield which Perseus used as a mirror so he did not look directly at Medusa. When Perseus beheaded Medusa it is said that Pegasus was born from the blood of the Gorgon. Many wanted to capture Pegasus but no one could work out how to tame such a magnificent creature!

Over the years, many British Virgin Island coins have featured horses especially when celebrating Royal occasions and Olympic equestrian events. This made Pegasus the perfect choice for the new flagship coin for the British Virgin Islands and we are pleased to include this new 1oz Silver coin with a Pearl Black finish version in the collection.

Approved by Buckingham Palace, this coin carries an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II exclusive to Pobjoy Mint.

  1. Hi. This Pegasus coin is beautiful. Well, at least the one side of it is. Was it just never considered that a photo of the other side might be a big plus for the ad/story? And while I understand that prices fluctuate for metals and coins, couldn’t you have given a general idea of it’s cost? Maybe show something like a price as of a date already passed?

    I know your reasoning is I’ll want to click to go to the website and buy something. But I’m so tired of all the constant lick-bait in ads like yours that I won’t click out of spite alone.

    Good luck with your sales.

    • Steve – We did not include an image of the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II because as the article states, it is exclusive to Pobjoy Mint and virtually the same image used on all of the coinage produced by Pobjoy and issued under agreement with the BVI. QE II’s image is on more coins than any other person…ever. We did not and do not think that adding it to this articles adds any additional information material to the story behind the article. But we do respect your opinion. We just disagree.

      The post for the Black Pegasus proof coin was written by and posted on behalf of the Pobjoy Mint. CoinWek does not buy or sell any coins, so we have no financial interest in the sales performance of this product.

      Since the mintage is only 2000 coins worldwide, and these coins will be showing up in the secondary market, I think it is safe to say that they are not going to be priced as a bullion product or even a normal collector proof issue. Anyone seriously interested in purchasing the product would likely call or click on the link to the Pobjoy Mint to find the price, or check any number of other sites to see what levels they are being offered and sold at. If you think it is all just click bait and marketing BS, than by all means, don’t click on any link. Totally 100% your choice on what you do and how you want to interact with any company selling a product.

      Thanks for visiting CoinWeek and we hope you have more positive outcomes and feelings toward the other 16,000 articles in our archives

      Kind Regards

  2. Burn!!! At least this reporter did his homework. The last article I read about a peace dollar selling for $2550 on eBay, contacted the seller personally. Turns out the sale was cancelled as the buyer meant to bid $255. Something a reporter may want to check before publishing an article a month after the supposed sale. The reply to the last comment makes up for the time I spent investigating the peace dollar story.
