Pobjoy Mint has captured one of the best-known creaturees in Greek mythology on 1 ounce of 24-carat gold - it's a must-have for your collection. This beautiful gold coin follows the success of the mint's Silver Reverse Frosted Pegasus Bullion. Thanks to its innate high quality design, this tax-free gold coin is sure to take pride of place among your other coins.
Pegasus, the noble pure-white winged horse, has been captured rearing up with his massive eagle-like wings spread, displaying his magnificence. The reverse features Pobjoy Mint's exclusively designed effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.
This gold coin is a first for British Virgin Island coins. Over the years many British Virgin Island coins have featured horses especially when celebrating Royal occasions and Olympic equestrian events. This made Pegasus the perfect choice for the new flagship coin for the territory.
This winged horse is usually depicted as white in colour and was always considered a good-hearted and gentle animal. Throughout his life, Pegasus remained a mysterious creature that symbolised divine inspiration or the journey to heaven. As a reward for his service and loyalty, Zeus honoured him with a special immortality, turning him into a constellation on the last day of his life.
Now you too can own this elusive creature with a gold coin destined to impress.
