Regular Price $69.00 Special Price $49.95

To highlight the effect of climate change on the Antarctic this coin features an image of the Larsen B Ice Shelf which has a hologram effect struck onto the coin. The hologram represents the part of the ice shelf that collapsed 15 years ago which retreats as you tilt the coin. The rim of this coin has been designed with a cracked ice effect that ties together the whole theme of the coin very effectively.

Pobjoy Mint is proud of the success we have had producing holographic coins in the past and as this coin is unusual and has a low mintage of just 2,002 (representing the year of the Larsen B Sector collapse) we foresee it becoming a highly desirable addition to any collection.
