In August 1768, Captain James Cook and his crew set sail on HM Bark Endeavour, commencing what would become a three-year voyage of discovery. It was the first of three such journeys for the intrepid pioneer, during which he would circumnavigate the world twice. His spirit of adventure helped to fill in the blanks on the world map and improve our knowledge of new places, peoples, plants and even other planets.

250 years later, The Royal Mint invites you to join us on a three-year adventure through history in coins. A series of three £2 coins, released each year from 2018 to 2020, will explore Captain Cook’s voyage of discovery in real time. The coins carry three intriguing designs by sculptor Gary Breeze, which combine to create a single, complete image that tells the story of Captain Cook’s voyage.

As a young man, James Cook dreamed of escaping
to a life on the seas. He studied mathematics and astronomy, both important skills for navigation. When he joined the Royal Navy at the age of 26, Cook became known for his cartography abilities, and in the early 1760s, he produced a map of Newfoundland so accurate that it continued to be used until the twentieth century. So, when plans were made for a scientific voyage to Tahiti to observe the Transit of Venus and discover new people, plants and places, Cook was an obvious choice as captain.

 In August 1768, Captain Cook set sail from Plymouth on HM Bark Endeavour, bound for Tahiti but also carrying a mysterious second set of sealed orders. 250 years later, you can start your own voyage of discovery with a series of three £2 coins that will follow Captain Cook’s famous expedition in real time. This Silver Proof £2 coin features the first of a three-part ‘puzzle’ design that will build to tell the story of Cook’s adventures. Presented in a Royal Mint case with a Certificate of Authenticity, each Proof issue will be a strictly limited edition.
