The Pobjoy Mint series of 50 pence coins featuring historical ships is back by popular demand and we are therefore delighted to announce the release of a new 2022 coin in the series on behalf of South Georgia & the South Sandwich Islands.
The coin features the steam-powered ship Moltke launched in 1877 and built for the German Imperial Navy. Moltke was a vessel of the Bismarck class and it was originally designed to serve as a fleet scout and to go on extended tours of Germany's colonial empire. But, it wasn’t until 1882, that it was deployed to carry the first German Expedition for the International Polar Year to South Georgia.
Moltke is an important part of the heritage of South Georgia & the South Sandwich Islands and represents a key moment in the island’s history.
The obverse of the coin features an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II produced exclusively by Pobjoy Mint.
