The Pobjoy Mint series of 50 pence coins featuring historical ships continues with a new coin produced on behalf of the British Antarctic Territory to commemorate the Centenary of the death of famous polar explorer, Sir Ernest Shackleton.

The design on the coin features the Endurance, a three-masted barquentine in which Shackleton sailed for Antarctica on his 1914-1917 Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition. The Endurance was thought to be the ideal ship for an Antarctic Expedition as it was designed with great inherent strength in her hull in order to resist collision with ice floes and to break through pack ice by ramming and crushing. The ship was originally built in Norway for Adrien de Gerlache and Lars Christensen, who intended to use her for arctic polar cruises for tourists to hunt polar bears. However, financial trouble led to the sale of the ship to Ernest Shackleton.
