To mark the 475th Anniversary of the Birth of Sir Francis Drake, Pobjoy Mint is pleased to announce the release of a new commemorative coin on behalf of the British Virgin Islands Government.

One of the greatest sea captains of all time, Drake was born in Devonshire, England around 1540 and first took to the seas at the age of 12 or 13.  He was to become a successful privateer and talented navigator.  He was commissioned by Queen Elizabeth I, as a privateer, to sail for the Americas. 

The design on this collector's coin features a map in the background of the British Virgin Islands with an image of the ship Defiance heading through what is now known as the Sir Francis Drake Channel.  A cameo portrait of Drake is also shown.  The obverse of the coin carries an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS.

 Available in Cupro Nickel and Proof Sterling Silver, each coin is detailed to perfection with the precious metal versions being struck four times to attain the Pobjoy quality ‘proof’ finish.
