2014: $5 Mawson Antarctic Expedition Silver Proof - Tokelau
2014: $5 Mawson Antarctic Expedition Silver Proof - Tokelau.
Struck to flawless Proof quality from precious silver, this official legal tender coin forms an affordable tribute to the 100th anniversary of the completion of the 1911-14 Australasian Antarctic Expedition, and to its leader, Sir Douglas Mawson (1882-1958).
Making key contributions to geographical and scientific research in Antarctica, and expanding humankind’s knowledge of the world’s coldest, driest, windiest continent, Mawson is rightly described as one of the legends of the Heroic Age of Exploration. Lauded for both what he achieved, and how he achieved it, Mawson’s place in Australian history is unrivalled.
