To commemorate the Centenary of Granting of Letters Patent in 2008, the British Antarctic Territory issued its first ever legal tender commemorative coins. A Currency Ordinance of 1990 makes provision for coinage for the Territory.

Since then two more coins have been produced with more planned.

The coins are available in cupro-nickel and sterling silver versions in £2 denominations. All coins feature the HM effigy on the obverse. The sterling silver version comes in a presentation case with a certificate of authenticity signed by the Administrator of the BAT. Although the coins are legal tender within the Territory they will appeal mainly to collectors and Antarctic tourists.
