Produced by the famous Pobjoy Mint, this Big Ben coin is the newest British Virgin Islands uniquely shaped coin! Big Ben is actually the name of the bell inside the famous Elizabeth Tower in London, England. The coin marks the 160th anniversary of the casting of that original bell, which has since cracked and been replaced. Big Ben is famous for the ring it produces and the distinctive shape of the famous tower is replicated in this dollar coin. In honor of Queen Elizabeth II's 90th birthday, the clock pictured is set to 2:40 am, her Majesty's actual time of birth. Made of nickel silver, which looks silvery, but contains no actual silver. Only 5,000 of these Brilliant Uncirculated coins will ever be issued. Includes a special presentation pouch.

This "so call" coin is very cheaply made and looks like it been made on a homemade press. The edges are rough, like someone hasn't bothered to file them down and the engraving is nowhere up to the standards of other coins. I was extremely disappointed with this and wouldn't recommend this to other numismatics.
The delivery came faster than I expected under the circumstances. I am very pleased with the product & the delivery.
