This remarkable new series explores Australia’s history to discover the larger than life animals that once roamed our land, with the first release featuring the Procoptodon. 

Peter Trusler is a world-renowned freelance artist and zoological science graduate from Monash University, Melbourne.

Trusler holds a special interest in biological illustration and is a founding member of the Wildlife Art Society of Australasia. His work is highly regarded and has been published around the world, in print media, books, medical and scientific journals, posters and stamps. Collections of his work are held in both national and international archives, most notably, the Australia Post Philatelic Collection, Melbourne; Museum Victoria, Melbourne; and the National Geographic Society Collection, Washington.

Each coin's reverse depicts a Procoptodon set against a coloured background. The inscription PROCOPTODON, the coin's weight and fineness, and The Perth Mint's 'P' mintmark are also incorporated into the design.
