Pobjoy Mint is delighted to introduce the first ever uncirculated cupro nickel commemorative coin to be approved for issue by the Administration of the British Indian Ocean Territory.

This first collector's coin issued under the British Indian Ocean Territory Coin Ordinance 2008 depicts the Coat of Arms of the Territory which was formally granted in 1990 on the 25th Anniversary of the Territory's Establishment.

The arms consist of a shield bearing the Union Flag in the top quarter, a palm tree and St. Edward's Crown in the middle half, with three white wavy lines representing the ocean in the bottom quarter. The two supporters are turtles (Green and Hawksbill), representing the local native wildlife. The crest consists of a crown and a castle bearing the territory's flag.

The motto, in Latin is ‘In Tutela Nostra Limuria’. In English, Limuria is in our trust. This refers to the non-existent continent of Limuria, once thought to occupy the Indian Ocean.

Approved by Buckingham Palace the obverse of each coin carries a fine effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS FSNAD and is available in Uncirculated Cupro Nickel and Proof Sterling Silver.
