The Winter dollar was dedicated to the noted explorer, Ronald Sutcliffe and his wife Eunice. An experienced polar explorer and guide, Sutcliffe served as the Colony's Expedition Leader. He had been the first to set foot on the continent of Antarctica, but that fact was kept a secret to preserve integrity and anonymity of the utopian colony. The reverse of this note pictures the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World: the Pyramids of Egypt, Colossus of Rhodes, Temple of Artemis at Ephesus, Statue of Zeus at Olympia, Hanging Gardens of Babylon, Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, and the Lighthouse of Alexandria.
