The Journeys of Discovery Coin Collection celebrates intrepid travelers and their exploration and discovery of the unknown. This collection of coins features the most well-known and memorable explorers of their time, including Marco Polo and Christopher Columbus.
The Charles Darwin 2oz Silver Coin marks the sixth release in this popular collection by New Zealand Mint.
Charles Robert Darwin (1809 – 1882) was one of the greatest naturalists of the 19th century, renowned for his contribution to the theory of evolution. During his voyages on the HMS Beagle, he completed extensive field research and developed his novel and revolutionary evolutionary theory.
This antique-finished, fully engraved and high-relief 2oz silver coin features a tranquil scene of Darwin studying his environment on a remote beach in the Galápagos Islands with iguanas by his feet. The HMS Beagle is moored in the background. In line with the previous releases in this series, the coin is packaged in a high quality wooden case, with protective draw string sack.
The New Zealand Mint will release no more than 2,000 of the 2016 Journeys Of Discovery - Charles Darwin 2oz Silver Coin.
