On three occasions over the past 125 years, scientists from around the world have joined forces for a massive research project focused on the Arctic and Antarctic. March 2007 sees the start of the fourth such International Polar Year and to celebrate Pobjoy Mint has produced this stunning ommemorative coin from South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands.

The new coin features Sir Ernest Shackleton. This celebrated polar explorer has strong links with South Georgia. He first arrived in the region after being shipwrecked (his ship, Endurance, was crushed in ice) while on a trans-Antarctic expedition. His book, South, is a record of that particular trip.

The coin features the great man, Shackleton, himself.  This is a rare chance to own a stunning coins depicting an area of the globe that is so often in our news thanks to negative stories concerning climate change. Why not show your support for the positive scientific work happening in the area during the fourth International Polar Year by adding these two coins to your collection?
