Pobjoy Mint announced a fabulous issue on behalf of the British Antarctic Territory to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Antarctic Treaty.

Antarctica is defined as all land and ice shelves south of 60°S latitude parallel and is Earth's only continent without permanent human inhabitants. The Antarctic Treaty was signed in December 1959 by 12 countries and entered into force in 1961 – the UK being the first state to ratify. There were 47 state parties which were made up of 28 Consultative and 19 non-consultative Parties. The Treaty set aside Antarctica as a scientific preserve, established freedom of scientific investigation and banned military activity on the continent. 2009 celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the Antarctic Treaty.

This is the second commemorative coin for the British Antarctic Territory, with 2008 seeing the release of the first Antarctic coin, this Anniversary coin is sure to follow in its footsteps and become just as popular. The design of this coin is very fitting to the underlying aim of the Treaty. The background features a map of the Antarctic which is surrounded by beautifully detailed images of the marine life that inhabit the area and which the Antarctic Treaty System aims to preserve.
