Pobjoy Mint is delighted to announce the release of a fourth £2 coin in the series to commemorate 200 years since the death of British Astronomer Sir William Herschel.
Sir William Frederick Herschel was a German-born British astronomer famously known for constructing the first large telescope in 1774 but, perhaps, his most important contribution to the science of astronomy was made in 1781 when he discovered the planet Uranus. This discovery brought him overnight fame and he was appointed Court Astronomer and knighted by King George III.
The design on the fourth coin features the Phoenix Constellation which is represented by the famous firebird Phoenix, the image of which is depicted on the design. The constellation itself is shown beneath the bird and a compass as it would read in Antarctica.
Issued on behalf of the British Antarctic Territory the coin has been produced in Bi-metal and Proof Fine Silver with Goldclad®. The obverse of the coin features an effigy of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II produced exclusively by Pobjoy Mint.
