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, we have selected the 1814 publication of Matthew Flinders’ historic journal, A Voyage to Terra Australis, as the inspiration for its latest releases. Through his journal, Flinders recounted his many journeys aboard the HMS Investigator and other vessels – including the first ever successful circumnavigation of the continent of Australia.
