This new coin celebrates the historic event of the official naming of the RRS Sir David Attenborough, which proudly carries Boaty McBoatface. We are also honoured to have been able to present Sir David Attenborough himself with the 1st Silver 50p Coin featuring Boaty McBoatface and the 1st Silver Crown Coin featuring RRS Sir David Attenborough on Thursday 26th September 2019.
