Pobjoy Mint announces the release of a new 50 pence on behalf of the British Antarctic Territory featuring the moon.

The design on this limited edition coin features the surface of the moon and includes the official NASA logo for which special permission has been granted by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in the United States of America.

Few things have inspired as much mythology and mystique as the moon. The moon is Earth’s only natural satellite. It is the fifth-largest satellite in the Solar System and the largest and most massive relative to its parent planet, with a diameter about one-quarter that of Earth.

For millenniums humans have had a close relationship and eternal fascination with the moon. According to NASA, the moon was created over 4.5 billion years ago, when a Mars-sized body collided with Earth created debris that accumulated together to form the moon. As modern technology progressed to give us the landmark moon landing in 1969 our fascination with the moon has spanned many disciplines from science to the supernatural to a more spiritual or magical level.

Despite the moon’s effect on humans being somewhat dubious, science has proven that the moon has very real and significant effects on animals and nature. The most obvious effect perhaps being ocean tidal flows and animal reproductive cycles in certain species.

Issued on behalf of the British Antarctic Territory, the coin will be produced in Cupro Nickel Diamond Finish Frosted and Proof Sterling Silver. Approved by Buckingham Palace, this coin carries an effigy of His Majesty King Charles III produced exclusively by Pobjoy Mint.
