Pobjoy Mint is pleased to announce the release of our new 50 pence coin featuring HMS Erebus in Proof Sterling Silver. On behalf of the British Antarctic Territory, this new coin commemorates the 220th Anniversary of the Birth of Sir James Clark Ross. 

In 1841, James Clark Ross discovered the Ross Sea, Victoria Land and the two volcanos Mount Erebus and Mount Terror which were named after the expedition’s vessels. They sailed for 250 nautical miles along the edge of low, flat-topped ice shelf which was later named the Ross Ice Shelf in his honour.

The design on this coin features the HMS Erebus. Our stunning Proof Sterling Silver coin will be presented in an acrylic box complemented with a sleeve that features a certificate of authenticity.
