2014 $10 Terra Australis 'C' Mintmark Gold Proof Coin

In 2014, the Mint has selected the 1814 publication of Matthew Flinders’ historic journal, A Voyage to Terra Australis, as the inspiration for its 2014 releases in this much loved series.

Availability: Sold Out

Code: 518
 
 
 

Through his journal, Flinders recounted his many journeys aboard the HMAS Investigator and other vessels – including the first ever successful circumnavigation of the continent of Australia; a recount of the wreckage of the Porpoise; and a diary of his six-and-a-half years as a prisoner at the hands of the French on the Isle de France (today’s Mauritius).

The Englishman often remarked that he was “induced to go to sea against the wishes of [his] friends from reading Robinson Crusoe”, so it is fitting then that his remarkable journal reads of adventures worthy of that wonderful book.
