We are thrilled to announce the third coin in our new series featuring ships connected to the British Virgin Islands.
The third coin in the collection features Royal Navy ‘HMS Astrea’, a 32-gun frigate of the British Royal Navy. HMS Astrea (or Astraea) was built at East Cowes, Isle of Wright. After having been rigged and fitted out she was commissioned in Portsmouth on October 1st, 1781. A total of 220 men and officers made up her roster, and she was finally ready to do her duty in the Royal Navy.
The design on the coin shows a side profile of the ship sailing. The coin is available in Virenium®, a metal developed by Pobjoy Mint which is light gold in colour. This stunning coin will be presented in a Pobjoy Mint presentation pouch. The obverse of the coin features an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II produced exclusively by Pobjoy Mint.
*This coin is sold in a round capsule inside a blue pouch. If purchased with an album or pop-in presentation pack no pouch will be supplied. If more than 14+ coins have been purchased, please note no pouches will be included and your coins will be dispatched in tubes.**
