The future is owned by those who dare. Men of vision and endeavor change history forever. Sometimes there is sacrifice and tragedy, but the rewards can often outweigh the risk. When Robert Burke and William Wills set off to traverse the unexplored north-to-south region of Australia, neither could have foreseen the outcome. From their sacrifice came new knowledge of the Australian continental geography and all the riches held within. The spirit of human endeavor, as embodied by Burke and Wills, helped forge Australia’s future.

Celebrating the 160th anniversary of that historic expedition with a new crown coin capturing the vast scope of their journey. This coin has been approved for minting by her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in recognition of this most important chapter of Australian history. The Burke and Wills Expedition Golden Proof Coin is now available at The Bradford Exchange.
