One of the most famed mythical beasts from antiquity is the Pegasus.

The new Pegasus Coin Series from Pobjoy Mint is struck for the British Virgin Islands. Located in the Caribbean Sea among the Leeward Islands of the Lesser Antilles, the British Virgin Islands are part of the so-called Virgin Islands archipelago that includes the US Virgin Islands nearby.
For several decades now, coins struck for use by the British Virgin Islands have featured the image of a horse. The Pegasus was a natural, yet unique direction, for the series of coins for the island territory. Each year the image of the Pegasus on the reverse will be altered slightly to enhance the collectible nature of the series.
All 2017 1 oz Silver Reverse Frosted Pegasus Coins are available in BU condition. Coins in this condition showcase no indications of wear and tear from handling, but may feature minor flaws from the production process. These flaws are limited to breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, or contact marks. Further, each coin has a reverse frosted, or reverse proof, finish. This means the background fields are strong and frosted, while design elements are mirrored and clear.
The reverse of the Silver Reverse Frosted Pegasus Coin features the famed winged horse known as the Pegasus. This horse is standing on the ground, with its rear legs firmly planted as its front legs lift off the ground. The goddess Athena has the Pegasus by its reins and wields a spear in her left hand.
On the obverse of all 2017 1 oz Silver Reverse Frosted Pegasus Coins youll find Queen Elizabeth IIs effigy. This right-profile portrait is the exclusive design of the Pobjoy Mint and features an engraving of PM below to indicate it is a product of the mint itself. The 2017 Silver Pegasus is the first-ever commemorative bullion coin struck for the British Virgin Islands, so nows your chance to get in on the ground floor with this stunning collection.
