Pure silver plated with gold

In 1778, British explorer Captain James Cook undertook his third (and what would be his final) incredible sea voyage. Attempting to discover the Northwest Passage, his journey which brought him and his crew to Canadian shores in 1778. 

250 years later, the Royal Canadian Mint commemorates this historic quest with a stunning gold-plated coin for you to treasure.

This 99.99% silver 2oz coin is plated with pure gold, and enjoys a larger-than-average diameter of 50mm. 

This big surface area allows the beautiful image by Neil Hamelin to really shine. The design features a Mowachaht beach keeper (an indigenous inhabitant of Nootka Sound) paddling out to greet the trading vessel of Captain Cook as it sails over tranquil waters.

The level of detail is astonishing - not just in the depiction of Cook's grand vessel, but in the smaller intricacies - for example, pay close attention to the beach keeper's oar and observe the traditional motif carved into the paddle.

To the left of the design are the dates 1778 - 2018, denoting the 250th anniversary of this historic event.

The reverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, ELIZABETH II and D.G REGINA.
