United Kingdom 2-POUNDS (KM1115) Chimpanzee

This is a great coin, commemorating the 200th anniversary of Darwin's publication of the first edition of On the Origin of Species in 1859. The double portrait of two great apes facing each other is priceless. It even includes the (shortened) book title and date on the edge

Thank you to Iain from England for gifting this coin!
