Charles Darwin - The Theory of Evolution (1st July, 1858)


On July 1st,1858 a revelation was made from the meeting at the Linnean society in London. A paper, by Charles Darwin illustrated the idea that all species of life have evolved over time from common ancestors. Rusted Post Box presents a docudrama on the birth of the theory, the life and times of Charles Darwin and his lesser known associate Alfred Wallace, with a twist - through stamps, coins and banknotes.

Rusted Post Box is a series of docudramas that relates various stamps, coins and notes to significant historic events. With the help of the newly established online museum, www.mintageworld.com, this series aims at imparting knowledge and creating interest in the areas of Philately, Numismatics and Notaphily within the general public, collectors, students and scholars alike.

Promoted by the “Ultra” group, mintageworld.com is the first website of its kind in the world, where all the three fields have been brought under one roof.
