The engraving on this impressive issue matches the image on the medal awarded at the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. Shown is the face of Zeus and his hand holding a globe with the winged Victory standing upon it. Issued by the Pobjoy Mint for the Government of the British Virgin Islands, this copper-nickel dollar commemorates the 150th anniversary of the birth of Baron Pierre de Coubertin. Coubertin was the founder of the International Olympic Committee and widely known as the Father of the Modern Olympics.
