Pobjoy Mint is delighted to announce the release of a stunning new proof fine silver £2 coin for the South Georgia & the South Sandwich Islands, commemorating 200 years since the birth of Florence Nightingale who was the founder of modern nursing. The techniques and skills pioneered by Florence Nightingale are vital to the medical support provided on South Georgia now and in the past. In the former whaling stations, the historic hospital sites and cemeteries provide mute testament to how dangerous life could be and underlines the importance of healthcare then as now. The design of this new coin features a heart in the centre with the trace of a heartbeat running across the heart. The heart is then surrounded by the beautiful feathered wings of an angel symbolising the protection of the care workers that has been given to those who were affected. The surround of the coin features six core values of every modern nurse, known as the 6Cs … Competence, Communication, Care, Courage, Commitment and Compassion along with the Coat of Arms of South Georgia & the South Sandwich Islands. The 6 C’s are values which are core to nursing, but the message of caring whether it be for people or wildlife and the environment are applicable more widely and never more relevant than in current times of global environmental change. In light of the global covid-19 pandemic, there is a groundswell of appreciation of modern healthcare. As a remote and isolated island Territory, strenuous efforts have been made to prevent the disease reaching South Georgia. Keeping people safe through quarantine, testing and preventing the spread of the disease are key to South Georgia as elsewhere. 2020 will be remembered in world history as a terrible year due to Coronavirus, but it will also be remembered as the year that the hard work and compassion of people and especially care workers was paramount. In recognition of this, Pobjoy mint will be giving 10% donation of the profit on this coin to support Cavell Nurses Trust who help nurses, midwifes and healthcare assistants who are suffering from personal of financial hardship which can often be due to illness, disability, old age or the impact of coronavirus. We believe this charity is the most fitting as it stands for the principles seen on the coin. Show more
