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.'
