Pobjoy Mint is especially proud to announce the release of a special Coloured Proof Sterling Silver 50p Coin to celebrate Boaty McBoatface. This new coin celebrates the historic event of the official naming of the RRS Sir David Attenborough, which proudly carries Boaty McBoatface. We are also honoured to have been able to present Sir David Attenborough himself with the 1st Silver 50p Coin featuring Boaty McBoatface and the 1st Silver Crown Coin featuring RRS Sir David Attenborough on Thursday 26th September 2019.
The design on the coin shows Boaty McBoatface being lowered into the sea from the research ship RRS Sir David Attenborough which has the name inscribed on the side of the vessel. The background shows an iceberg behind the ship in an Antarctic landscape.
Available in Proof Sterling Silver with Boaty McBoatface being portrayed in colour, this stunning new coin perfectly commemorates this historic occasion. The exclusive Pobjoy Mint effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is shown on the obverse of the coin.
