Charles Darwin

Charles Darwin, 1840.

The Friends of Charles Darwin were founded in 1994 to campaign for the depiction of their hero, Charles Darwin, on a Bank of England bank note. The great man finally appeared on the new £10 note in November 2000.

Due to popular demand, we're still taking on new members. We currently have 3869 members in 95 countries. Our most recent new member is Steven Shipton of Tewkesbury, England.

So if you can truly say "Charlie is my Darwin", and you'd like to be able to write the letters FCD after your name, why not join us? It's totally free!

On this Day

On this day in 1833, HMS Beagle arrived at the Rio Negro. Darwin travelled inland to the town of Patagones, then on to General Juan Rosas' camp on the Rio Colorado.
