Comments

The coin is the second release in the Evolution Companion Series of Proof Kookaburra coins, which celebrates the expansion of frontiers of human knowledge. The five year series, which commenced in 2001, features a special design on each 10oz proof coin based on the theme of evolution.
This coin features an intricate design incorporating representations of ancient and modern timekeeping methods and the latin inscription 'Tempus fugit et nunquam revertitur' (Time flies and never returns).
The obverse design bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

In keeping with the theme of time, the 2002 10oz Evolution coin has been 'antiqued' to give it an aged appearance.
