Sir Joseph Banks was a renowned British naturalist, patron of the natural sciences, and president of the Royal Society from 1778 until his death in 1820. His sister, Sarah Sophia Banks, lived with Sir Banks and Lady Banks for her entire adult life and shared her brother's great interest in natural history. She was also an avid collector of coins, medals, and printed ephemera (her collection of over twenty thousand items is now in the British Museum).
