Pegasus Gold Bullion Coin
Pegasus Gold Bullion Coin First from Pobjoy Mint
The Pobjoy Mint has added a Pegasus gold bullion coin to its releases. This coin is the first gold bullion coin minted for the British Virgin Islands. It uses the same image as the 2018 Pegasus silver bullion coin.
Pegasus, the subject of the coin, is a winged horse from Greek mythology.
This coin is the second of the Pegasus silver bullion series for the British Virgin Islands, and the first gold bullion coin issued for the British Virgin Islands. As bullion coins become more popular, there is an increasing demand for gold.
The image used on the reverse of the coin is that of Pegasus rising with wings extended.
Pegasus Gold Bullion Coin Details
The coin contains one-ounce of 0.9999 pure gold. It is dated 2018, and issued for the British Virgin Islands. The coin is shipped in a heat sealed pack, which may offer some protection. The denomination of the coin is one hundred dollars. On the negative side, there is no set limit for the number of gold coins to be minted. However, this may be insignificant, since the demand for gold bullion coins may set the limit low when the 2019 coins are released, if there is to be a 2019 release. The design of the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II used is exclusive to the Pobjoy Mint.
The coin is only available in the one-ounce size at this time. Unless a future release of fractional gold coins is made it would seem there is a market being missed. There is a demand for affordable gold, which means fractional gold for many.
These are already on ebay.
