Marking the Diamond Jubilee Year of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign, Pobjoy Mint is delighted to announce the issue of a new legal tender commemorative coin on behalf of the British Antarctic Territory. This special collector’s coin celebrates the naming of Queen Elizabeth Land, an area in the southernmost part of the British Antarctic Territory, in honour of Her Majesty.
This awe-inspiring coin, released in Proof Sterling Silver, features the entire British Antarctic Territory, together with an outline showing Queen Elizabeth Land. This beautiful coin is further embellished with the inclusion of a cameo portrait of Her Majesty and the wording ‘Queen Elizabeth Land’.
Available in Proof Sterling Silver and Uncirculated Cupro Nickel, all these coins have been finished to an exceptionally high standard as befits a Pobjoy Mint coin. In addition, the precious metals have been struck four times to produce a glorious mirror-finish background with the design sculpted in striking relief.
A new coin celebrating a new land in honour of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II
The announcement of the naming of Queen Elizabeth Land was made by the Foreign Secretary, The Right Honorable William Hague on the 18th December 2012 when Queen Eliabeth II visited the Foreign and Commonwealth Office as her last official engagement in the Diamond Jubilee year of her accession.
This beautiful land is a triangular segment extended to the South Pole, almost twice the size of the United Kingdom. Filled with mountains, glaciers and a profusion of wildlife, this land is a fitting tribute to a great Queen.
The obverse of the coin carries an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS. Ian Rank-Broadley is one of the foremost sculptors working today. His effigy of H.M. Queen Elizabeth II has appeared on all UK coinage since 1998 and the Pobjoy Mint has exclusive use of the ‘uncouped’ effigy that appears on the obverse of these coins.
