Pobjoy Mint to donate 20% of British Virgin Islands coin sales to Hurricane Irma fund

a8274f03-2322-47cf-a1b5-a7ca834242c4

Pobjoy Mint will be donating 20% of the sale value of all Proof Silver and Cupro Nickel coins (retail and wholesale) issued on behalf of the British Virgin Islands, to a fund that has been set up by the Islands Government following Hurricane Irma.

A statement from Pobjoy Mint read:

'Hurricane Irma – a category 5 hurricane – passed through the British Virgin Islands on 6 September at around 2pm AST. The hurricane directly hit the Territory and whilst we are currently unaware of the full extent of the damage, it is evident that the Islands have been servery impacted.

As the official mint of the British Virgin Islands our thoughts and prayers here at Pobjoy Mint are with the islanders, their families and our Caribbean friends, who have been affected. The Pobjoy family regularly visits the British Virgin Islands and personally know the buildings and the areas that have been devastated.

To try and offer some relief to the affected islanders; Pobjoy Mint will be donating 20% of the sale value of all Proof Silver and Cupro Nickel coins (retail and wholesale) issued on behalf of the British Virgin Islands, to a fund that has been set up by the Islands Government.

All British Virgin Island Legal tender coins can be found at the below link. Any help will be much appreciated by the islanders.'
