AFTER THE DEVASTATING NEWS CAUSED BY HURRICANE IRMA THAT HAS AFFECTED THE BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS AMONG MANY OTHER CARIBBEAN ISLANDS, POBJOY MINT WILL BE DONATING 20% OF THE SALE VALUE OF ALL SILVER PROOF AND CUPRO NICKEL COINS ISSUED ON BEHALF OF THE BVI TO A FUND THAT HAS BEEN SET UP BY THE ISLANDS GOVERNMENT. YOUR HELP WILL BE MUCH APPRECIATED BY THE ISLANDERS.
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II celebrates two birthdays each year, her actual birthday on 21st April and her official Birthday on 10th June. To commemorate her 90th Birthday we have produced a new coin on behalf of the British Virgin Islands with the unique shape of the number 90.
To highlight the unique shape of the coin we have included a bouquet that covers its surround by showing the Rose of England, the Thistle of Scotland, the Daffodil of Wales and the Shamrock of Ireland, which represent the four countries that make up the United Kingdom.
Her Majesty’s 90th Birthday Official Party will be held at Windsor Castle on 12th- 15th May 2016 and it will be a celebration of The Queen’s life, her dedication to the Commonwealth and international affairs and her deep involvement with the Navy, Army and Air Force.
The design on the coin features a portrait of Her Majesty in the centre of the “0” with the coin value in the centre of the “9”. The surround of the coin features a bouquet holding the national flowers of the countries that form the United Kingdom. The obverse carries Her Majesty’s effigy by Pobjoy Mint with a continuation of the bouquet design.
The Queen usually spends her actual birthday privately, but the occasion is marked by gun salutes in London at midday: a 41 gun salute in Hyde Park, a 21 gun salute in Windsor Great Park and a 62 gun salute at the Tower of London. As 2016 is such a milestone birthday there will be a thanks giving service held at St Paul’s Cathedral as well as a large street party for 10,000 guests in London’s Mall.
This stunning coin is being produced in Fine Silver Gold Plated and Nickel Silver and Bronze.
