The Pobjoy Mint series of 50 pence coins featuring historical ships continues with a new coin produced on behalf of the British Antarctic Territory to commemorate the 150th Anniversary of the birth of Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen.
The design on the coin features the Fram, a three-masted schooner which was designed to withstand the freezing waters of the Arctic and Antarctic regions. The Fram was designed and built by the Scottish-Norwegian shipwright Colin Archer for Fridtjof Nansen's 1893 Arctic expedition. Nansen had planned to freeze Fram into the Arctic ice sheet and float with it over the North Pole.
The ship is said to have sailed farther north and farther south than any other wooden ship. Before the Titanic, the Fram was the most famous ship in the world.
The obverse of the coin features an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II produced exclusively by Pobjoy Mint.
