Approximately 50 small islands make up the British Virgin Islands, with people living on about one-third of them.
The islands were called the Virgin Islands until after World War II. That was when the U.S. made a real estate deal for the Danish West Indies, and renamed them the U.S. Virgin Islands. Meanwhile, Britain was forced to change the name of their paradise slightly to avoid confusion.
The government issued the first ever coinage in 1973, all with animals.
