The Pegasus is a famed flying horse from Greek Antiquity. According to mythology, the Pegasus was born of the blood of Medusa, one of the three Gorgons and an evil creature that was killed by Perseus, the demi god son of Zeus. Pegasus was gifted to Perseus after he defeated Medusa and featured in other stories from Greek mythology.
Obverse design elements in the 2018 British Virgin Islands Frosted Pegasus 2 oz Silver Coin release include the right-profile bust of Queen Elizabeth II. This portrait of the Queen is exclusive to the Pobjoy Mint and shows the Queen wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown commissioned early in the reign of King George IV in 1820. This stunning crown contains 1,333 diamonds weighing in excess of 300 karats.
For the reverse field, the 2018 British Virgin Islands Frosted Pegasus 2 oz Silver Coin has the image of the Pegasus standing up on its hind legs with its front legs kicking as it spreads its wings behind its figure. The only inscriptions on this face include $1 and Ag .999 2 ounce.
British Virgin Islands Pegasus silver coins were introduced in 2016 by the Pobjoy Mint. What originally included a 1 oz silver coin has since grown to feature 2 oz and 5 oz options in the series as well. The coins are reverse frosted in this series, indicating mirrored elements and frosted background fields. The BVI historically used horses on its currency, making the revival of horse designs for this bullion series an important historical connection across the ages. Today, the official circulating currency in the BVI is the US dollar.
