2019 British Virgin Islands $1 Pegasus Reverse Frosted 1oz. .999 Silver (No Tax)

The second release in the popular Pegasus bullion coin series minted on behalf of the British Virgin Islands is a stunning Silver Pegasus coin featuring a reverse frosted finish and depicts Pegasus rearing up with his impressive wings spread.

This Reverse Frosted Silver bullion coin was issued from the Pobjoy Mint following the success of their inaugural 2017 release of the Pegasus coin.

Pegasus is one of the best-known creatures in Greek mythology. This winged horse is usually depicted as white in color and was always considered a good-hearted and gentle animal. Throughout his life, Pegasus remained a mysterious creature that symbolized divine inspiration or the journey to heaven. As a reward for his service and loyalty, Zeus honored him with a special immortality, turning him into a constellation on the last day of his life.

The story of Pegasus begins when Perseus is sent to kill one of the three Gorgons, Medusa who had writhing snakes instead of hair. It was said that anyone unfortunate enough to gaze on her face would turn to stone. The God Hermes and the Goddess Athena came to aid Perseus with special gifts, including a shield which Perseus used as a mirror so he did not look directly at Medusa. When Perseus beheaded Medusa it is said that Pegasus was born from the blood of the Gorgon. Many wanted to capture Pegasus but no one could work out how to tame such a magnificent creature.
