To commemorate the 80th Anniversary of the Start of the Second World War, Pobjoy Mint is pleased to announce the release of Uncle Sam and Britannia in Uncirculated Cupro Nickel. Issued on behalf of the British Virgin Islands, this coin symbolises the unity between the United States and Great Britain.
The reverse of the coin displays Uncle Sam, with an eagle to represent the United States, and Britannia, holding a shield and trident alongside a lion to represent Great Britain. This design illustrates both countries standing strong together with the iconic American Eagle and British Lion.
The wording “World War II” appears in the surround with the value at the base. The obverse of the coin, issued on behalf of British Virgin Island features the exclusive Pobjoy Mint effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
The Second World War was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although related conflicts began earlier. It was the most global war in history and directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries.
The vast majority of the world's countries eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. A state of total war emerged. The major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, and is marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities.
