I decided to collect by geography, all medals and exonumia which is associated with the Arctic & Antarctic islands. It turned out to be quite curious. If someone is already interested in this issue, please join the topic and post interesting materials.
I managed to find various exemplars that correspond to the various islands on the Arctic & Antarctic islands. About 100 islands

How about this one?

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

For example, here is the Ukrainian station in Antarctica: 34 people at the Akademik Vernadsky station.

For interest, they mint their tokens. For many tourists, the Vernadsky station becomes the first place where they learn about the existence of the state of Ukraine. And their impressions of Ukraine are shaped to a large extent by what they see at the station. Our polar explorers always represent their country with dignity and talk about it. But I also want souvenirs for memory. This year, the center has worked on a line of souvenirs. This is the first Antarctic station where anyone can get their own coin. Everyone can feel like a blacksmith and knock out the Antarctic hryvnia.

I found photographs of both sides of the token, though so far only in this quality:
