Following the success of the £2 coin issued on behalf of the Government of South Georgia & the South Sandwich Islands last year, Pobjoy Mint is delighted to announce the new release of a 50 pence coin which bears the design which reflects the universal role of nurses and their nursing values. These values have contributed to medical provision on South Georgia in the past, during this present time and will also continue do so in the future. This new coin features the values every nurse works to known as Compassion in Practice or the 6Cs … Competence, Communication, Care, Courage, Commitment and Compassion. This code presents the professional standards that nurses, midwives and nursing associates strive to uphold. These values are particularly relevant to South Georgia’s heritage, especially during the whaling era where the number of graves is testament to how dangerous their occupation was during that time.

While the majority of the world remains in the grip of the Coronavirus pandemic, this design is particularly apt for South Georgia as the Territory is currently Covid free and they are working with the support of British Antarctic Territory Medical Unit to ensure that the Territory is kept safe during this time. The design on the new 50 pence coin features a heart in the centre with the trace of a heartbeat running across the heart. The heart is then surrounded by the beautiful feathered wings of an angel symbolising the protection of the care workers that is being given to those who are affected. The 6Cs of Compassion in Practice are shown in the surround along with the Coat of Arms of South Georgia & the South Sandwich Islands. The new 50 Pence coin will be housed in a special presentation pack.
