The second series featuring the Explorers’ First Sightings theme depicts a drawing by Henry Constantine Richter, originally sketched by John Gould. Famed wildlife author John Gould often sought the assistance of talented artists, including Richter. The inspiration for this beautiful design was taken from this publication. The obverse has the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, as designed by Ian Rank-Broadley. This coin comes complete with box and an accompanying numbered certificate of authenticity.
