2020 Bi-Centenary of the Discovery of Antarctica £2

This 2020 Bi-Centenary of the Discovery of Antarctica £2 is the first-ever British Antarctic Territory £2 Bi-metal coin in celebration of the 200th Anniversary of the Discovery of Antarctica.

It is staggering to think Antarctica was only found two centuries ago. For many more centuries, this part of the world was left unseen and it was only in 1820, 200 years ago, that it was discovered.

This very special £2 features the ship, the Williams used by Edward Bransfield on his voyage to survey this newly sighted land of ice. A map of Antarctica is shown behind the ship. This stunning coin will be presented in a beautiful presentation pack, special to this coin. The obverse of the coin features an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II produced exclusively by Pobjoy Mint.

Only 2020 were issued in this Special Presentation Pack and just 199 of the Proof Sterling Silver.
