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.
The designs on the four coins include two new sports which are making a welcome return to the Games after a long absence and two of the newer events. The coins are also available with the two ribbons featuring the Brazilian flag and Union Jack coloured making these coins a wonderful tribute to what is sure to be a colourful Olympic Games.
The coins are available in Uncirculated Cupro Nickel and Proof Sterling Silver and each beautifully engineered precious metal coin has been struck four times to produce the superlative Pobjoy proof finish.
The design features an image of each sport and another one representing either the Olympic Games or the host nation. 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.
Available as a set in an exclusive Pobjoy Mint four coin set red box.
