Pegasus Series Continues with Unique Design and New Sizes
APMEX, a leading Precious Metals e-retailer based in Oklahoma City, is thrilled to introduce beautiful additions to an increasingly popular series. This year, the Pegasus Series not only sees a new design but also unique new size options.
This exceptional series from the Pobjoy Mint celebrates the famous winged horse from Greek mythology. The 2018 issues display Pegasus rearing up with his wings spread. The obverse of each features a likeness of Queen Elizabeth II that is used exclusively by the Pobjoy Mint, adding a unique collectible aspect.
The close-up image of Pegasus gains added beauty through the coin’s interesting Reverse Frosted finish, which showcases the central design in a matte, frosted finish while the outer rim is mirrorlike. This special production brings out details of the design that would not otherwise seem as prominent.
While the main hit of the 2017 Silver Pegasus release was a 2-coin set, this year sees new sizes made available. The Pobjoy Mint has produced a 5 oz Silver coin along with an extra-thick 2 oz Silver coin. These unique sizes are joined by the 8 gram Virenium coin, which contains nickel, copper and zinc with a magnetic element built in to serve as a security device.
The story of this classic mythical creature begins when Perseus is sent to kill Medusa. The god Hermes and goddess Athena came to aid Perseus with special gifts. When Perseus beheaded Medusa, Pegasus was born from her blood, tamed by Athena and given to Perseus. After Pegasus helped Perseus rescue Andromeda, he was carried to Mount Helicon where he was entrusted to the care of the Muses.
This mythical beauty would make an exceptional addition to any Silver collection. Shop APMEX today to find the full Pegasus Series while limited mintages are available.
