              The South Orkney Islands are a group of islands in the Southern
Ocean. TheSouth Orkneys consist of four major islands -
Coronation, Signy, Powell and Laurie. The islands have been
administered as part of British Antarctic Territory since 1962 and
prior to this as a Falkland Islands Dependency. Under the Antarctic
Treaty 1959, the Islands' sovereignty is neither recognized nor
disputed by the signatories and they are free for use by any
signatory for non-military use. The islands are claimed by
Argentina which has maintained a permanent base there since
1904.
No private issues of South Orkney Islands banknotes have
been
found. If there's any activity on the island, the British Pound is
used as a local paper currency.
