400th Anniversary of Dirk Hartog's Landfall
Bust of Queen Elizabeth II to right
Dirk Hartog made landfall on the west coast of Australia aboard the Eendracht 400 years ago. As the first European visitors to Australia to mark their arrival, the crew left behind a pewter plate inscribed with details of their visit and onward journey. Based on the original Hartog plate from the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, this faithful coin design is symbolic of European-Australian shared histories, and represents your chance to own another chapter in the story of Australia and the VOC (Dutch East India Co.).
