ALSO AVAILABLE IN A LIMITED EDITION SILVER VERSION WHEN YOU CLICK THIS LINK Pobjoy Mint is delighted to announce the release of a unique coin on behalf of the British Virgin Islands which celebrates the 125th Anniversary of the Completion of the Eiffel Tower. Named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, the Eiffel Tower is an iron lattice tower located in Paris which was erected in 1889 as the entrance arch to the World’s Fair. It has become one of the most recognized structures in the world. The Tower was the tallest man-made structure in the world from 1889 to 1930 and stands 1,063 feet/324 meters tall. At the time, Eiffel stated that the Tower would symbolize “not only the art of the modern engineer, but also the century of Industry and Science in which we are living, and for which the way was prepared by the great scientific movement of the 18th Century and by the Revolution of 1789, to which this monument will be built as an expression of France’s gratitude”. The main structural work was completed at the end of March 1889. In all there are 18,038 pieces joined by two and a half million rivets. Eiffel had a permit for the Tower to stand for 20 years and it was to be dismantled in 1909. However, because the Tower proved to be valuable for communication purposes it was allowed to remain after the permit had expired. This unique coin has been produced in the shape of the Eiffel Tower – a feat of engineering in itself – showing the intricate girders. The obverse of the coin carries an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
