Exclusively crafted for the Antarctic Connection

The South Pole Marker Medallion/Zipper Pull is fashioned after the actual marker at the Geographic South Pole, 90 degrees South set on January 1 of each year.
 
Manufactured in limited quantities they have become collector’s items.

The geographic South Pole sits at 9300 feet (2835m) above sea level. Because the actual South Pole is covered by roughly 9000 feet (2700m) of moving glacial ice the surface mark actually moves approximately 30 feet (10m) annually. Each January 1st the position of 90 degrees south is re-determined and a new unique survey marker is erected.
Both pin and zipperpull are 1 1/8 inch in diameter.
  • Pewter pin has rear clasp.
  • Pewter zipperpull has 3/4 inch clasp to hang from any loop.
