Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS is a British sculptor who has produced many acclaimed works, among which are several designs for British coinage.


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.

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.
