HMS Endeavour was originally commissioned as a collier, a coal-transport designed to ferry fuel to Royal Naval ships of the line.
Captain James Cook captained her in 1768 in order to explore and colonise new lands, and observe the 1769 transit of Venus. The voyage lasted 3 years. During this time, Cook and the Endeavour sailed to Australia and New Zealand, charted the coastline, and claimed several Pacific islands for the British Empire.
With a worldwide mintage of just 500, these exclusive coins are truly a rare treasure.
