Take to the Seas with Captain Cook

Follow Captain Cook, a name synonymous with adventure and exploration, into uncharted waters with these exceptional £2 coins from The Royal Mint.

With these anniversary issues, you'll be enjoying a world-first: Cook's first-ever appearance on an official UK Coin.

Marking the 250th anniversary of his voyage to Tahiti in the summer of 1768, The Royal Mint's 2018 design features the unmistakeable stern of Cook's ship, the Endeavour, as she casts off from Plymouth. Look closely and you'll spot the ensign of the United Kingdom along with the proudly-waving flag.  

But that's not all...

Captain James Cook sailed thousands of uncharted miles, to places never-before-discovered by Europeans. His voyages helped to fill in the world's map, revealing an image of our globe as it had never been seen before.

Reflecting this epic voyage, 2 more exciting designs by Royal Mint designer John Breeze will be released in 2019 and  2020, continuing this epic journey of Britain's naval past. Once placed together, like corners of a map being filled in, all 3 coins can combine to create a larger design. 

By purchasing this 2018 £2, you're starting your own amazing voyage of discovery.

Follow the horizon and secure these world-first Captain Cook £2 coins today.
