Legal tender coin vanuata
•  Uncirculated Cupro Nickel,
• 10 vatu 38 mm diameter

Only on rare occasions has a sitting U.S. President been featured on a legal tender coin… but the inauguration of President Barack Obama in 2009 was such a milestone in history that he has been honoured on a special commemorative from Vanuatu. Obama is one of the world’s most popular leaders, and his election as the first African-American President was cause for celebration across the globe. The coin shows a fine profile portrait of Obama. It not only marks a truly historic event, but it’s also a wonderful work of art that will be cherished by young and old alike for many years to come. Don’t miss your chance to own this important piece of history!

 

 

 

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.
