Baron Pierre de Coubertin, better known as the ‘Father of the Modern Olympics, was born in 1863. To commemorate the 150th Anniversary of his birth Pobjoy Mint has released an exceptional new Proof Sterling Silver coin on behalf of the government of the British Virgin Islands (BVI).

The coin’s design reproduces the image taken from the medal awarded to the winners at the very first modern Olympic Games in 1896. It features the face of Zeus, in whose honour the ancient Olympic Games were convened, together with his hand holding a globe upon which Winged Victory displays the traditional olive branch of victory.

Paying tribute to the Olympic idea that continues to inspire millions of athletes around the world these beautiful coins are available in proof sterling silver and uncirculated cupro nickel. Finished to an exceptionally high standard, as befits all Pobjoy Mint coins, adding these to your collection provides the perfect way to keep the Olympic spirit alive.
