2018 Reverse Frosted Pegasus and 2-Coin Set Now Available at APMEX
In 2016, the Pobjoy Mint began minting the Pegasus Series. In 2017, the Pegasus was the first-ever bullion coin minted in behalf of the British Virgin Islands and the series continues with the 2018 1 oz Silver Pegasus coin.
Pegasus is widely known and originated from Greek mythology. He was a child of the Olympian god Poseidon and brought Zeus his thunder and lightning. According to legend, any place Pegasus struck his hoof to the earth, a spring emerged. The symbolism of Pegasus has changed over time. Originally seen as a symbol of wisdom in the Middle Ages, the creature has also been associated with poetry.
The 2018 release features a new design – a close-up of Pegasus rearing on his hind legs with his wings spread. The frosted background gives a subtle texture to the open field behind Pegasus, creating an elegant backdrop to the mythical character. The obverse depicts a Queen Elizabeth II effigy exclusive to the Pobjoy Mint.
Also available is the new 2018 2-Coin Silver Pegasus Proof/Reverse Frosted Set. This set features the APMEXclusive® Proof Silver coin only available through these sets. Each set comes with a certificate of authenticity and there is a limited mintage of only 300 sets worldwide.
The 2018 2-Coin Silver Pegasus Proof/Reverse Frosted Set is sure to capture the imagination of everyone who sees it. You can shop the new releases now on our website!
