120th Anniversary of the First Antarctic Flight Coin
The first balloon flight in Antarctica was launched by Captain Robert Falcon Scott on February 4, 1902 and reached a height of 180 metres.
2022 marks a 120 years since this momentous event.
To commemorate this we have created this 2 inch collectors coin featuring the image of Scott and his crew launching the balloon on the front and coming right up to the present day with the aircraft of the British Antarctic Survey Air unit on the back.
Measuring 2.00″ in diameter and 4mm thick, the coins come in capsules as standard.
You can also select a presentation box, acrylic stand or ‘floating’ coin stand from the drop down menu if you’d like to take it up a notch!
