In 2017, the Pobjoy Mint in England started producing a series of reverse-frosted coins for the British Virgin Islands, an official British Overseas Territory. As the island nation had a history of producing coins with images of horses on it, it seemed only natural for Pobjoy to begin issuing coins for the territory with the most iconic horse in history. Today, you have the chance to purchase 2019 British Virgin Islands Reverse Frosted Pegasus 5 oz Silver Coins online from Provident Metals.
The Pegasus is a mythical beast that arose from the tales of the Ancient Greeks. The winged horse had the ability to fly and is said to have been borne of the blood of Medusa. In Greek mythology, the pegasus was gifted to the demi-god Perseus for his defeat of Medusa. These beautiful, winged beasts are rare with mythology suggesting that only one ever actually existed.
Queen Elizabeth II features on the obverse of 2019 British Virgin Islands Reverse Frosted Pegasus 5 oz Silver coins. This right-profile bust of the Queen was created exclusively for the Pobjoy Mint and depicts Her Majesty down to the shoulder line with a necklace around her neck and the George IV State Diadem Crown on her head. Inscriptions on this face of the coin include British Virgin Islands, Queen Elizabeth II, 2019.
A pegasus is depicted on the reverse side of 2019 British Virgin Islands Reverse Frosted Pegasus 5 oz Silver Coins raised up on its hind legs with its powerful wings flexed back behind its figure. The pegasus design changes in this series with most releases. The inscriptions on this face include Ag 999 5 Ounce and $5.
Although the British Virgin Islands is a British Overseas Territory and these coins are produced in England at the private, family-owned Pobjoy Mint, the BVI actually uses the US Dollar as its official form of currency given its geographic proximity to the United States and the prevalence of American travelers in the island chain.
2019 British Virgin Islands Reverse Frosted Pegasus 5 oz Silver Coins are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and come with an individual plastic capsule. The coins in this listing are available with reverse frosted visuals that include mirrored designs and frosted background fields.
