Pobjoy Mint is delighted to announce the release of a brand new £2 celebrating 100 years since the end of the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration featuring the Antarctic.
The Antarctic was a Swedish Steamship built in Drammen, Norway in 1871. The ship was originally built and used for activities such as seal hunting across areas such as Greenland. However, in 1900 Otto Nordenskjold purchased the Antarctic for use in his exploration of the Antarctic Peninsular region. The Swedish Antarctic Expedition, led by Nordenskjold, has often been distinguished by the sheer volume of its scientific findings and overcoming of substantial difficulties.
The coin features the Antarctic ship and its leader Otto Nordenskjold. Issued on behalf of South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands the coin has been produced in Bi-metal and Proof Fine Silver with Goldclad®. The obverse of the coin features an effigy of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II produced exclusively by Pobjoy Mint.
