Description of obverse and reverse Obverse: Coat of Arms and face value. Reverse: The young Charles Darwin. 2009 has been the Charles Darwin Year. Not only to commemorate his 200th Birthday on February the 12th 2009, but also because of the 150th Anniversary of the publication of his book On the Origin of Species, which proved unexpectedly popular, with the entire stock of 1,250 copies oversubscribed when it went on sale to booksellers on 22 November 1859. In this book, Darwin stated his theory of natural selection ("survival of the fittest") which was opposite to the existing evolution theories, and therefore causing a lot of controversy.
