With repairs made and provisions restocked, Captain Cook’s voyage of discovery continued. The HM Bark Endeavour sailed from Rio De Janeiro around Cape Horn and into the Pacific, bound for Tahiti. Here Cook was tasked with observing the Transit of Venus, a rare astronomical phenomenon that scientists hoped would help them calculate the size of the Solar System. Having established an observatory for this purpose and charted the island, finally, it was time to open the sealed orders he had been carrying since departure. A more secretive mission emerged and the search for the fabled southern continent was about to begin.

As we continue our exciting series celebrating the 250th anniversary of Captain Cook’s first great voyage, The Royal Mint is delighted to release the second of three coins. Struck in 22-carat gold and finished to finest Proof standard, artist Gary Breeze commemorates Captain Cook’s time at Tahiti in 1769, with a design featuring the mast of the HM Bark Endeavour below a celestial image of the Transit of Venus. A fitting tribute to a man who has come to personify the great age of exploration.

More Details:

  • The first time Captain Cook has been commemorated on a series of UK coins.
  • Pay tribute to Captain Cook’s legacy of scientific discovery and exploration.
  • Features an original design by artist Gary Breeze.
  • Presented in a wooden box complete with a fascinating booklet that brings the stories of Cook’s voyage to life.
  • An extremely low mintage of just 350 making this a highly collectible coin.
  • Gary Breeze’s ‘puzzle’ design builds over three years to reveal Captain Cook’s story.
