The Reverse Frosted Pegasus coin issued for the British Virgin Islands debuted in 2017 as the first-ever silver bullion coin for the island territory. Horses have featured at various points in the past on BVI coinage, and the Pegasus represents a natural evolution and continuation in the design of BVI coinage. Right now, 2018 1 oz Silver Reverse Frosted Pegasus Coins are available to purchase online from JM Bullion.

Each 2018 1 oz Silver Reverse Frosted Pegasus Coin in this listing is available in BU condition. Coins in this condition do not exhibit any signs of wear and tear, though you may notice a range of minor flaws including breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, or contact marks resulting from the coining process.
Further, these Silver Reverse Frosted Pegasus Coins are bullion specimens with a unique reverse-proof finish. This means that the background fields have a strong, frosted matte finish backing up the deeply-mirrored, clear design elements for beautiful contrast.
Early British Virgin Islands coins have featured horses in the design elements. In many cases, these horses were shown in Royal events, such as drawing the monarch’s coronation coach. Equestrian events are a favorite of the Royal family, serving to enhance the value of horse designs on BVI coinage.
On the obverse of the 2018 1 oz Silver Reverse Frosted Pegasus Coin you’ll find the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is the longest reigning monarch in British history, and is currently the longest reigning monarch in the world today. She has been Queen of England since 1952 when she ascended to the throne following her father’s death. This right-profile portrait is an exclusive design of the Pobjoy Mint.
The reverse of the 2018 Silver Pegasus Coin features an all-new design for the second-annual release. This year’s image captures the Pegasus in all its might as it rears up on its hind legs with wings spread wide behind its back.
Pobjoy Mint was founded by the Pobjoy Family in 1965. Today it is the largest private mint operating in Europe and is located in Surrey, England, just outside of the national capital in London.
