To commemorate the 25th anniversary of the death of Jacques-Yves Cousteau, Pobjoy Mint is pleased to announce the release of this limited edition 50 pence coin on behalf of the British Antarctic Territory.

Jacques-Yves Cousteau was a French naval officer, explorer, conservationist, film maker, scientist, photographer, author and researcher who studied the sea and all forms of life in water. He co-developed the Aqua-Lung, the first open-circuit SCUBA set, and pioneered marine conservation. With his iconic red beanie and famed ship Calypso, the French marine explorer sailed the world for much of the late 20th century, educating millions about the Earth's oceans and its inhabitants—and inspiring their protection. 

The design features the ship Calypso with a balloon set to take off for aerial exploration in the icy Antarctic waters. The coin is available in Proof Sterling Silver in a presentation acrylic box with complementary sleeve and in Cupro Nickel Diamond Finish inside a beautifully presented pack.  The obverse of the coin features an effigy of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II produced exclusively by Pobjoy Mint.
