2014 A Voyage to Terra Australis  $1 Uncirculated Four Coin Mintmark and Privy Mark Set

Each year the Royal Australian Mint seeks to introduce a unique, eye-catching, and engaging theme as a figurehead for its gallery press and mintmark collection. In 2014, the Mint has selected the 1814 publication of Matthew Flinders’ historic journal, A Voyage to Terra Australis , as the inspiration for its 2014 releases in this much loved series.

Through his journal, Flinders recounted his many journeys aboard the HMAS Investigator and other vessels – including the first ever succe ssful circumnavigation of the continent of Australia; a recount of the wreckage of the Porpoise; and a diary of his six-and-a-half years as a prisoner at the hands of the French on the Isle de France (today’s Mauritius). The Englishman often remarked that he was “induced to go to sea against the wishes of [his] friends from reading Robinson Crusoe”, so it is fitting then that his remarkable journal reads of adventures worthy of that wonderful book.
