There are very few places in the world where there has never been conflict, where the environment is fully preserved and where preference has been given to scientific exploration. Antarctica is one such place, a whole continent that the Treaty Parties have designated as a "natural reserve, dedicated to peace and science". Initially signed on 1 st December 1959 in Washington by the twelve countries that were active in Antarctic science at the time, the Treaty came into force on 23 rd June 1961. It has actually because been acceded to by many other nations, and there are now 54 Parties to the Treaty.

Among its 14 articles, the Treaty specifies that Antarctica needs to only be utilised for amicable reasons; it guarantees the ongoing flexibility to carry out clinical research, and promotes global scientific cooperation, setting aside disputes over territorial sovereignty. 60 years after the Treaty went into force, the Parties remain dedicated to a system that secures Antarctic interests and allows science to offer us the capability to keep track of the effects of climate change - an essential issue that impacts the whole of this world. The coin is offered on behalf of the Government of the British Antarctic Territory, with complete recognition of Article IV of the Antarctic Treaty.
