Coin Information:

To mark the 250th anniversary of British explorer Captain James Cook’s Voyage of Discovery, The Royal Mint announced in 2018 they would be releasing a unique 3-part £2 series. This is the second £2 in the series and the distinctive reverse, designed by Gary Breeze, features part of Captain Cook's famous ship. Once all three coins in the series are collected, you can arrange them together to reveal the full design. Captain James Cook underwent three famous voyages which were responsible for the detailed mapping of lands in the Pacific Ocean, including New Zealand and Hawaii. His work inspired future explorers and astronomers for generations, and this coin honours the first of these voyages.
