Description

In previous years Pobjoy Mint has always issued coins to commemorate the Olympic Games.  The 2016 Summer Olympics are no exception and we are delighted to announce the release of a series of four coins on behalf of the British Virgin Islands.

The Games will take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from 5th to 21 August 2016. 10,500 athletes from 205 countries will contest 306 different events over 28 sports during the two and a half weeks of competition – all aiming to achieve the goal of being awarded the Gold Medal.

Design

The design features a female beach volleyball player diving for the ball with a lady in full Rio Carnival costume in the background.  Beach Volleyball was first contested at the Games in 1996. Each coin also features two ribbons, one which carries the Brazilian Flag and the other showing the Union Jack. The obverse of each coin carries an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II exclusively by Pobjoy Mint.  

Presentation

The Cupro Nickel coin is shipped in a unique Pobjoy Mint blue presentation pouch.
