The Pobjoy Mint introduced the Pegasus Series in 2016. The stunning silver coins are typically issued only in a standard 1 oz bullion weight, but along with a new design feature on the reverse for 2018, the mint also delivers new weights. The new weights available in the 2018 release of the coins include these 2 oz silver coins and a 5 oz option as well.
All 2018 2 oz British Virgin Islands Silver Frosted Pegasus coins in this listing come in Brilliant Uncirculated condition housed inside of protective packaging. The coins in this series are unique bullion offerings in that they feature a reverse frosted finish. This means that the design elements on both sides of the coin have a mirrored appearance overlaying a strong, frosted background field.
On the reverse of 2018 British Virgin Islands Silver Frosted Pegasus Coins is the image of the mythical flying horse. The Pegasus has a tale rooted deep in Greek mythology. When Perseus was sent to kill Medusa, one of the three Gorgons, the gods gave him many gifts. After he defeated Medusa, it is said the flying horse known as the Pegasus was born of the Gorgons blood.
The obverse of 2018 2 oz British Virgin Islands Silver Frosted Pegasus Coins includes the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This design is similar to that of Jody Mints fifth-generation design for the Royal Mint of England. However, this right-profile portrait goes further in depicting the Queens neckline and shoulders in a design used exclusively by the Pobjoy Mint.
