British Virgin Island $10 Silver Coin, 2015, Mint, Great Sphinx Proof
One of the Wonders of Ancient Egypt, the Great Sphinx features on this incredible collector's coin issued by Pobjoy Mint on behalf of the British Virgin Islands (BVI). Following on from the huge success of the Ultra High Relief Pyramids coin in 2014, and continuing with the Egyptian theme, the British Virgin Islands Government has approved the release of a new Ultra High Relief commemorative coin featuring this amazing monument.
To replicate the Sphinx’s towering height, this ultra high relief coin creates a three-dimensional image that rises majestically above the coin’s surface.
Available as a 1oz Fine Silver, the obverse of the coin features an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS. Each coin is detailed to perfection and struck to the highest quality. Making this beautiful coin the perfect gift or a great addition to any coin collection, it is presented in a beautiful triangular shaped gold box reminiscent of the pyramids which surround the monument.
