Fossilised in clay, immortalised in PURE SILVER…
The Royal Australian Mint is celebrating a precious glimpse into humanity’s past with a spectacular coin struck to pristine Proof quality, showcasing one of the world’s most famous footprints. The Mungo footprints are the oldest ever found in Australia and the largest set of ice age footprints on Earth!

This thoughtfully designed and striking $1 Australian legal tender coin showcases a detailed and artful representation of a Mungo footprint in cracked clay! The footprints of three different sets of ancient individuals were captured forever in the clay of the Willandra Lakes Region 20,000 years ago and discovered by archaeologists in 2003. A fascinating snap shot of history and insight into the lives of people in the Pleistocene era!

 

Secure your piece of Australian pre-history – only 5,000!
In 2006, the tracks were covered by sand to protect them from the elements. Only a handful of people know the exact location of these wondrous footprints and now a select few can own their own version! The 2021 $1 Mungo Footprint Silver Proof Coin is limited to 5,000 and presented in an official, informative presentation box.
