About this Product
 
Sea the Seahorse!

The Treasury of the British Virgin Islands have launched a new crown for 2014 whose focus is on the marine life of this British Caribbean territory. One of the more exciting of which was the Dolphin!

Dolphins are the cetacean mammals closely related to whales or porpoises. They are almost 40 different species of dolphins that vary in size from a small 4ft in length to a colossal 30ft! Dolphins are often regarded as one of the Earth's most intelligent animals.

As highly social animals, dolphins are often found in group called pods, which vary greatly between species and locations. Membership in the pod is not rigid, however, dolphins can establish strong social bonds. They will even stay with injured or ill individuals helping them breathe by bringing them to the surface if needed.

Struck by the Pobjoy Mint, UK, on behalf of the British Virgin Islands, the design on the reverse side features a beautiful seahorse with its tail entwined around some coral. The obverse of the coin features a head and shoulders effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS. The coin has been produced in Turquoise Titanium. Titanium is exceptionally difficult to strike and each coin is truly unique. As there is a distinct lined effect present on the coins - also unique to Titanium metal, no Titanium coin is exactly the same as another.

The coin is encapsulated.
