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 coin set on behalf of the government of the British Virgin Islands (BVI).

This special set consists of two incredible collector’s coins in a custom silver-coloured box. The coins’ design 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. These beautiful coins are produced in the same design, material and diameter (48mm) as the medals awarded to the winners and runners-up at the very first modern Olympic Games in 1896. 

During these inaugural Olympics, winners were given a silver medal and an olive branch, whilst runners-up received a copper medal and a laurel branch. This beautiful set has been produced containing one Proof Fine 999. Silver coin and one Copper edition. With only 2,000 two-coin sets available, this collector’s edition creates a very desirable piece of history.
