History of Life on Earth
The Earth is a little over 4.5 billion years old, its oldest materials being 4.3 billion-year-old zircon crystals. Its earliest times were geologically violent, and it suffered constant bombardment from meteorites. When this ended, the Earth cooled and its surface solidified to a crust - the first solid rocks. There were no continents as yet, just a global ocean peppered with small islands. Erosion, sedimentation and volcanic activity - possibly assisted by more meteor impacts - eventually created small proto-continents which grew until they reached roughly their current size 2.5 billion years ago. The continents have since repeatedly collided and been torn apart, so maps of Earth in the distant past are quite different to today's.
The history of life on Earth began about 3.8 billion years ago, initially with single-celled prokaryotic cells, such as bacteria. Multicellular life evolved over a billion years later and it's only in the last 570 million years that the kind of life forms we are familiar with began to evolve, starting with arthropods, followed by fish 530 million years ago (Ma), land plants 475Ma and forests 385Ma. Mammals didn't evolve until 200Ma and our own species, Homo sapiens, only 200,000 years ago. So humans have been around for a mere 0.004% of the Earth's history.

This unique and extremely rare coin features an insert of a nano-chip of the latest generation which provides an insight into the evolution of life on our planet. Under the microscope one finds informative details and illustrations of Evolution across the last 542 million years.
Beginning in Ancient Times (Paleozoic), on to the Middle Ages (Mesozoic), and right up to Contemporary Time (Cenozoic), illustrations simple arthropods through to Homo erectus are shown as steps of evolution. Who knows whether the human race will also simply be referred to as an intermediate stage of Evolution in an indefinite period of time?
The coin's reverse recalls the concept of evolution.
The coin's obverse depicts the Raphael Maklouf effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.
