Comments

The 7th release from The Perth Mint's popular Australian Antarctic Territory Series commemorates the Husky.

Husky is a general term for several breeds of dogs ideally adapted to hauling sledges in cold, snowy conditions. Originally from northern regions, huskies were introduced to Antarctica by the British Antarctic Expedition of 1898-1900. Australia kept huskies in Antarctica for almost 40 years beginning in 1954 with the opening of Mawson Station. As well as proving to be hard-working, reliable forms of transport, they were also loyal companions and much-loved by Australian Antarctic expeditioners.

In 1991, Australia signed an environmental treaty that required introduced species to be removed from the Antarctic. The last remaining huskies left the Australian Antarctic Territory in 1993, the older dogs retiring to Australia, while the younger working dogs began new lives in the United States.
