About this Product
 
Pobjoy Mint is delighted to announce the release of a unique coin on behalf of the British Virgin Islands which celebrates the 125th Anniversary of the completion of the Eiffel Tower.

Named after its engineer, the Eiffel Tower is an iron lattice tower located in Paris, France. It was erected in 1889 as the entrance arch to the World's Fair. The Tower was the tallest man-made structure in the world from 1889 to 1930.

The main structures work was completed at the end of March 1889. Eiffel had a permit for the Tower to stand for 20 years and it was to be dismantled in 1909. However, because the Tower proved to be valuable for communication purposes it was allowed to remain after the permit had expired.


This unique coin has been produced in the shape of the Eiffel Tower - a feat of engineering in itself - showing the intricate girders. The obverse of the coin carries an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Available in Proof-like and Nickel Silver, the coins are struck to the highest quality with each beautifully engineered coin struck four times to produce a superlative finish.
