Animals - Other:  1915 Darwin Monkey.

1915 Silver plated Darwin Monkey representing Darwin's theory of the evolution of species by the action of natural selection.  There are hundreds if not thousands of pages written and dealing with this theory and with the best will in the world, I could not hope to compress them into just a few lines on this site, if you would like to know more about this subject then please visit this site:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Darwin.  It is also worthy of note, a portrait of Charles Darwin also appears on the back of an English 10 pound note first issued 7th of November 2000.
