Embark on a Voyage to Discover the NEW £2 Captain Cook Coin Collection

In the summer of 1768, British explorer, Captain Cook set sail for the ‘Great South Land’ on his famous Voyage of Discovery.

250 years on, The Royal Mint announced they would be commemorating Captain Cook’s extraordinary travels with a unique coin series to feature three beautifully designed £2 coins.

This is the first time Captain Cook has appeared on UK coinage and today, the VERY LAST coin in the collection has been released, the 2020 UK Captain Cook £2.

His famous ship, HM Bark Endeavour features on the design and, just like a secret map, when all three coins in the collection are placed together the design can be seen as a whole.

The first coin was released in 2018 and saw huge popularity from Collector’s and explorers alike!

Now the final coin has been released, collectors can finally complete this incredible £2 series.

Voyage of Discovery

Cook’s great expeditions to the South Seas had a hidden agenda –  carrying secret orders from the British Admiralty who hoped for him to discover ‘a Continent or Land of great extent’ to take possession of ‘in the Name of the King of Great Britain’.

On each epic journey, Cook made spectacular discoveries which expanded the understanding of the world beyond known horizons.

Artefacts such as maps, logs, paintings and journals recorded during Cook’s voyages revealed a new and exciting world, transforming the European view of the Pacific Ocean.

By 1770, his first voyage aboard the Endeavour brought Cook to the southern coast of New South Wales and from there he continued northwards, charting Australia’s eastern coastline.

On the 22nd August 1770, Captain Cook fulfilled his mission and claimed the eastern Australian continent for Great Britain.

However, the intrepid voyager did not stop there. He embarked upon two more expeditions in 1772 and 1776 to find an inhabited southern continent in the Antarctic Circle and a passage linking the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
