EVOLUTION

Engraver: Helmut Andexlinger

Helmut Andexlinger (1973, Haslach an der Mühl, Upper Austria) is an Austrian engraver and coin designer.

Reverse

The coin’s reverse deals with the history of human development and the diversity of forms of life brought about by evolution. Andexlinger includes a somewhat stylized DNA chain on the reverse.

Three hominid figures also appear in the reverse, recalling the famous graphic “The March of Progress” created by Rudolph Zallinger for F. Clark Howell’s book Early Man, published by Time-Life. The scene is well recognized, copied and parodied the world over.
