The British Antarctic Territory is situated in Antarctica and lies
south of latitude 60°S and between longitudes 20° and 80°W. The
Territory comprises the Antarctic Peninsula with all adjacent islands,
the South Orkney and South Shetland Islands and the Weddell Sea, as
well as the landmass extending to the South Pole. This is the first
official coin from the British Antarctic Territory. Visitors to Port
Lockroy in West Antarctica will be able to obtain these coins from the
United Kingdom Antarctic Heritage Trust office based there.
