About 200 years ago in the early 1800’s, the Earl of Elgin gathered some of the most stunning classical sculptures from the Parthenon and other buildings on the Acropolis in Athens.

The ancient Greek sculptures are now known as the Elgin Marbles and are some of the greatest treasures in the British Museum.

This remarkable coin from the British Virgin Islands features one the highlights from the Elgin Marbles.

It displays two charging horsemen in exceptional high relief to capture the drama of the original frieze that was carved more than 2,400 years ago.

The Antiqued Bronze coin even looks like an ancient coin. Don’t miss your limited opportunity to own this spectacular tribute to classical sculptures!

.Pobjoy Mint was established in the middle ages in Great Britain and today makes superior coins for special commemoratives and for governments.

Pobjoy has reputation as top coin designer and coin dieing techniques and for top quality packaging.

 

The Pobjoy family has been associated with fine metalwork since the Middle Ages. The Company was recently granted permission to use the family Coat of Arms in which the Medieval Popinjay is the central motif. The Popinjay was a painted wooden parrot used in archery contests in the 14th century and the name Pobjoy is derived from this. The Latin motto 'OCULO CERTO' means 'with an unerring eye' and applies equally to the ancestor's prowess as a marksman, as to the Company's reputation for the high quality and precision of its products. Over the past three centuries, the Company has been involved in many diverse fields, but they have always been involved in metal, both base and precious. During World War II Pobjoy Aero Engineering was involved in the manufacturing of the famous Spitfire wings. The Company is now the largest private Mint in Europe.
