From 14th June to 15th July 2018 the FIFA World Cup™ will take place in Russia. To celebrate this world renowned event, the British Virgin Islands has approved the release of a stunning new coin which has been produced in conjunction with MDM, Germany.
The 2018 FIFA World Cup™ will be the 21st international tournament for football which takes place every four years. This will be the first World Cup hosted by a European country for 12 years and the first ever to be held in Eastern Europe. 32 national teams will take part in the final tournament – the 31 teams who made it through the qualifying competitions and the team of the host nation who qualify automatically. A total of 64 matches will be played during the tournament in 12 venues in various cities across Russia. The long-awaited World Cup Final will take place on 15th July at the Luzhniki Stadium.
The design on the reverse of the coin shows two footballers tackling for the ball. The 2018 FIFA World Cup™ Marks appear on the coin tying in elements to represent football along with symbols of Russian folk art and including a symbolic star for the Championship. The main design is surrounded by a dome which leads to an image St George, who is the Patron Saint of Russia, slaying the dragon. In the stunning colour version of the coin the dome, the star and St George and the dragon are coloured to enhance the design on the coin. The obverse of the coin carries an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II which is exclusive to Pobjoy Mint.
