2007 $1 Uncirculated Coin - International Polar Year 2007 - 2008
The International Polar Year 2007-2008 (IPY) is an international program of outreach and education into polar science. Australia, as an original signatory to the Antarctic Treaty (1961), has a proud history of involvement and exploration of Antarctica. Given the significance of the International Polar Year and Australia’s involvement in the Antarctic region, the Royal Australian Mint will be releasing a Polar Series coin collection over the next three years. The first release in the collection is a beautifully designed uncirculated coin depicting the Antarctic and Australian Antarctic Territory. The Antarctic is an isolated, icy region, initially discovered by explorers in the 19th
century. With a vast array of fascinating fauna and flora, the Australian Antarctic Territory is home to a number of famous research bases, such as Mawson, Davis and Casey.
The Polar Series coins encapsulate Australia’s historical link to Antarctica.
