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.
