In August 1768, Captain James Cook and his crew set sail on HM Bark Endeavour, commencing what would become a three-year voyage of discovery. It was the first of three such journeys for the intrepid pioneer, during which he would circumnavigate the world twice. His spirit of adventure helped to fill in the blanks on the world map and improve our knowledge of new places, peoples, plants and even other planets.
This 22 carat gold Proof £2 coin features the first of a three-part ‘puzzle’ design telling the story of Cook’s adventures. This coin comes in the official Royal Mint case, with a Certificate of Authenticity, original outer boxes. The coin is FDC
