76p The discovery of the annual depletion of ozone above the Antarctic was first announced in a paper by Joe Farman, Brian Gardiner and Jonathan Shanklin of the British Antarctic Survey which appeared in Nature in May 1985. Later, NASA scientists re-analysed their satellite data and found that the whole of the Antarctic was affected. The portrait of Her Majesty was taken in March 1985 when she visited St Julian's School in Carcavelos Portugal. (Photo by Tim Graham/Getty Images).

£1.01 RRS James Clark Ross (named after Admiral Sir James Clark Ross, R.N.) is operated by the British Antarctic Survey. It was built by Swan Hunter Shipbuilders, Wallsend, UK and launched by H.M. The Queen on 1 December 1990. The vessel can steam at a steady two knots through level sea ice one metre thick. To assist passage through heavy pack ice a compressed air system rolls the ship from side to side freeing the passage. The portrait of Her Majesty was taken in July of that year when she visited Portsmouth and the QE2 ship named after her. (Photo by Tim Graham/Getty Images).

£1.22 Queen Elizabeth Land is a portion of mainland Antarctica named for the monarch in 2012 and forming part of the British Antarctic Territory, which is the largest of the 14 British Overseas Territories. The then Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, William Hague, said that the naming was "a fitting tribute at the end of Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee year". The portrait of Her Majesty was taken as she embarked on the first part of the Diamond Jubilee River Pageant in London on June 3, 2012. (Photo by Eddie Mulholland/AFP/GettyImages).
