The design is symbolic of the site of Davis Station on the coast of the ice-free Vestfold Hills. The coloured image, which appears within the outline of Antarctica, also portrays the Kista Dan, a ship with a welded ice breaker hull that was instrumental in the establishment of Davis and Mawson Stations. The design incorporates the inscriptions 'DAVIS STATION : 1957 - 2007' , 'Australian Antarctic Territory', and the Mint's traditional P mintmark.

Comments

The 4th release from The Perth Mint's popular Australian Antarctic Territory Series commemorates Davis Station.

The establishment 50 years ago of Davis Station, named in honour of Captain John King Davis (1884 - 1967),  a successful Antarctic navigator and the Master of ships used on expeditions led by both Ernest Shackleton and Douglas Mawson. The most southerly Australian Antarctic Station, situated 2,250 nautical miles south-south west of Perth, is a valuable staging base for scientific activity in the region, with the capacity to support a large population of scientists during the summer season.
