The final coin in the International Polar Year Series is uniquely different, it is a beautifully coined hologram coin.
The $5 Silver proof hologram coin shows a silhouette of a sailing ship surrounded by the amazing colours of the Aurora Australis. The colour of the hologram changes to represent this celestial phenomenon.
Royal Australian Mint has included design elements from the preceding coins. Keen observers will see the location details of several key scientific base camps, the Antarctic Skua in flight and the first Australians to reach the South Magnetic Pole from the Ernest Shackleton expedition. As with those earlier releases they have again included intricate laser frosting revealing concentric patterns on the land mass map. This is also the only coin of the series which includes the International Polar Year official logo.
