On behalf of the British Virgin Islands (BVI), Pobjoy Mint is pleased to announce the release of an unmissable new series of coins commemorating the centenary of the outbreak of World War I.
One of the most defining events of the 20th century, ‘The Great War’ as it is often known, remains a shocking reminder of the horrors of warfare. Marking this incredible anniversary, Pobjoy Mint’s highly collectable coins have the title ‘We Will Remember Them’ and reflect the more poignant stories of World War I. Each coin also features a Poppy as a symbol of remembrance – a tradition connected with WWI.
This beautiful WW1 commemorative coin, in Proof Sterling Silver, includes the depiction of Lawrence of Arabia on a camel against a background of Aqaba.
Available in Uncirculated Cupro Nickel and Proof Sterling Silver, each precious metal coin has been carefully struck four times to create the famous Pobjoy Proof finish and features frosted high relief sculpting against a mirror brilliant background. As an Act of Remembrance for this Centenary, the coin is also available in a special edition with the poppy produced in full colour.
The obverse of the coin carries an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS. Ian Rank-Broadley is one of the foremost sculptors working today. His effigy of H.M. Queen Elizabeth II has appeared on all UK coinage since 1998 and the Pobjoy Mint has exclusive use of the ‘uncouped’ effigy that appears on the obverse of these collector’s coins.
We will remember them
In June 1914, a Serbian nationalist assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria in Sarajevo. An intensification of threats and deployment orders followed the incident which led to the outbreak of World War I. By the time World War I ended, more than 9 million soldiers had been killed and 21 million wounded.
This remarkable coin, released in commemoration of the war, offers a fitting tribute to those who sacrificed their lives for the freedom of others. A limited edition, this Proof Sterling Silver collector’s coin comes in a stunning presentation box complete with a certificate.
Other coins available individually or as part of an incredible World War I Centenary series feature the Edith Cavell Memorial in Norwich, England with a nurse in the foreground. Edith Cavell was the British nurse celebrated for saving the lives of soldiers from both sides without distinction.
