2018 Pegasus 1 oz Virgin Islands Silver Bullion Coin

The 2018 Pegasus 1 oz Virgin Islands silver bullion coin issued by the Pobjoy mint and provided in a coin cpasule.

COIN INFORMATION

The story of Pegasus begins when Perseus is sent to kill one of the three Gorgons – Medusa who had writhing snakes instead of hair.  It was said that anyone unfortunate enough to gaze on her face would turn to stone.  The God Hermes and the Goddess Athena came to aid Perseus with special gifts, including a shield which Perseus used as a mirror so he did not look directly at Medusa.  When Perseus beheaded Medusa it is said that Pegasus was born from the blood of the Gorgon.

After Pegasus had helped Perseus rescue Andromeda, he was carried to Mount Helicon where he was entrusted to the care of the Muses.

Many wanted to capture Pegasus but no one could work out how to tame such a magnificent creature.  After being advised to sleep in the temple of Athena, Bellerophon saw the goddess before him holding a golden bridle.  When he awoke he was alone but the bridle remained.  He ran from the temple and found Pegasus drinking at a spring.  Bellerophon put the charmed bridle on the winged horse’s head with little difficulty and, with the bridle in place, Pegasus became gentle and tame and Bellerophon became his master.

The obverse features the Pobjoy exclusive effigy design of HM Queen Elizabeth II with a reverse frosted effect. In order to maintain the exclusivity of this piece, no more than 50,000 of the 1oz Fine 999. Silver Reverse Frosted Bullion coins will be produced.
