I love the history of Captain Cook so I am extremely excited for this three coin set. This coin is stunning with the gold edge accent. Gary Breeze did an amazing job with the design. I can't wait to see what 2019 brings!
Very nice coin. Thank you
The order process was simple and the product arrived in a timely fashion. It was well packaged for the transocean shipment and for appropriate display in a collection.
The design of this beautiful coin is shown off perfectly in silver proof quality. As the first of four in the series I cannot wait to see the others...
UK 2018 Captain Cook Silver Proof £2 Coin
Own the new Voyage of Discovery £2 coin in the ultimate coin quality
To mark the 250th anniversary of the first great voyage of Captain James Cook, The Royal Mint has announced the release of a new United Kingdom £2 coin.
The design is beautiful and will ensure it is snapped up.
There are 3 other distinct factors that we think makes this a great (if not essential) addition for your collection:
Firstly, it has an edition limit of just 4,795. Which makes it the rarest Silver Proof £2 issued this year. However, we have been allocated just a small number. This will send demand sky high.
This is the only way you can own this coin in Silver. The Mint has taken the unusual step of not issuing it in double-thickness Piedfort as they normally do.
Thirdly, and most unusually, The Royal Mint has announced that this will be the first coin in a unique set of THREE £2 coins issued over three years. Each reverse has been designed that when the coins are eventually placed together, a complete, larger design will be revealed. The next two coins will be released in 2019 and 2020.
Obviously, to own the complete set, you need to own this first coin – the starting piece.
Designed by Gary Breeze, this coin features the stern of Captain Cook’s famous ship, HM Bark Endeavour, leaving Plymouth. The ensign and the UK flag are visible alongside the distinctive signature of Cook and the number 250 to mark the anniversary.
As it is such a small edition limit these will sail out quickly at the official Royal Mint price of just £67.50 (+p&p).
Each coin will arrive ready to display in its Official Royal Mint Presentation Case with a Certificate of Authenticity.
