In 1860 the South Australian government offered a prize to whoever could traverse the Australian continent from south to north first. Explorers Burke & Wills set out to claim the prize. They led a 19 man expedition but only one man survived. This 20 cent coin depicts Burke and Wills on camels and shows camel tracks depicting their route south to north and footprints going in all directions.
