Following the 2006 release of The South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands coin which was released in conjunction with BBC Televisions Frozen Planet programme and which showed an adult King Penguin with its downy chick, Pobjoy Mint are delighted to announce this coin is being issued with a 2012 year date and this year includes a delightful cuddly toy penguin chick.

The coin, the first of which was struck on Monday 3rd October by Dr. Elizabeth White, one of the Directors of the programme, who herself filmed in both continents, includes in the official BBC Frozen Planet logo.

In the south, one of the key locations was the sub-Antarctic Island of South Georgia.  The team undertook 4 major filming trips to document the lives of some remarkable animals whose dramas play out on this remote and spectacular island. But filming here isn’t for the faint-hearted: 900 miles from the Falklands, over some of the roughest seas on the planet, this is an unforgiving place with no margin for error.  Six different camera teams were deployed to South Georgia over a period of around 3 months. By far the most effort, however, was spent documenting the lives of the animals, which visit the island during the different seasons.
