Pobjoy Mint has unveiled a brand new reverse frosted bullion $1 coin to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC. The coin has been issued on behalf of the British Virgin Islands Government.
The design of the coin features the seated figure of Abraham Lincoln. A silver bullion privy mark “P” is also present which is unique to Pobjoy Mint bullion coins.
The Lincoln Memorial is an American national memorial built to honour the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. It is on the western end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., across from the Washington Monument.
The statue in the Lincoln Memorial was carved by Piccirilli Brothers under the supervision of the sculptor Daniel Chester French and took four years to complete. The statue, which was originally intended to be only 10 feet/3 metres tall finally stood at 19 feet/5.8metres tall and sits inside the memorial which is in the form of a neoclassical temple. The memorial's architect was Henry Bacon.

In order to maintain the exclusivity of this piece, no more than 5,000 of the 1oz Fine 999. Silver Reverse Frosted Bullion coins will be produced.
Approved by Buckingham Palace this coin carries an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II exclusively by Pobjoy Mint, which also features a frosted background.
