British Virgin Islands 2017 Pegasus Silver Dollar Reverse Proof
|Item Number: 47911|
|The newest coin from the world-renowned Pobjoy Mint, this silver dollar proof features a unqiue design featuring Pegasus, a character from Greek mythology. Pegasus is a winged horse, who is known for aiding many a hero in slaying monsters and rescuing damsels-in-distress. The mythical creature is shown prominently on the reverse, along with Athena, Greek goddess of wisdom. On the obverse is an exclusive portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
This coin is minted by the award-winning Pobjoy mint on behalf of the British Virgin Islands. It is struck four times to create a style called "reverse proof", where the background is frosty and the images are mirror-like and stark. A normal proof coin is the opposite, and this stunning technique only serves to enhance this coin's beauty.
With a mintage of only 50,000, this silver bullion has 1 ounce of .999-grade silver, making it a wonderful choice for collectors and investors alike.
