Items: 2010 150th Anniversary of Burke and Wills Expdetition – UNC 2 Coin Set
This is a fitting trubute to Burke and Wills and their incredible journey from Melbourne in the south to the estuary of the Flinders River on the Gulf of Carpentaria in the north, a distance of around 3250 kilometres. This will surely be a very popular set pursued by collectors Australia wide. Unlike previous years with these sorts of releases both the One Dollar and Twenty Cent coins are available in the same set. The 2 choices in this series were either the magnificent Proof Quality or the Brilliant Uncirculated two coin set as is offered here. The two coins mark the start and the end of the expedition. The 20c coin shows Burke and Wills setting out on their epic journey. The $1 coin portrays John King, the sole survivor of the expedition, resting under the iconic ‘dig tree’ at Bullah Bullah waterhole on Coopers Creek. The folder they come in also has micro copy pictures of their jounal inside. Beautifully presented in every way and a fabulous gift or investment.
