UK, 2 pounds, 2001.


Robert Evans' design commemorates the centenary of the first transatlantic radio message by Guglielmo Marconi, which was transmitted from Poldhu in Cornwall and received at St John's in Newfoundland in 1901. It consisted of the Morse code letter 'S' (•••).

The reverse depicts radio waves decorating the centre and outer border, while a spark of electricity linking the zeros of the date represents the generation of the signal.

Uruguay issued a new design series in 2011, a very attractive wildlife set. A rhea had already graced an Argentinian circulation coin of the 1980s, but two of the subjects, the armadillo and the capybara, had never before appeared on a circulation coin of any country. The puma design on the 10 pesos was copied from the classic design seen on the 1942 one peso coin. These designs were all the work of Robert Evans, except for the puma, which was modelled but not designed by Mr Evans.







$1.   Armadillo.
$2.   Capybara.
$5.   Rhea.
$10. Mountain lion.

Designer: Robert Evans.
