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.

Captain James Cook charted more of the planet than any other historical figure, establishing Britain's reputation as a nation with a spirit of adventure. Captain Cook's primary objective was to sail to Tahiti to observe the Transit of Venus across the sun, a rare astronomical event.

A series of three ₤2 coins, released each year from 2018 to 2020, will explore Captain Cook's voyage of discovery in real time.

250 years after the start of his journey, you can embark on your own voyage of discovery with a series of ₤2 coins that will follow Captain Cook's famous voyage in real time. In order to guarantee completion of your three-year journey, you can order your first coin today.

I am on the NW Coast of America & I ordered my coins from Island Coins and had them in my possession in less than a week despite the distance and their having to be processed through US Customs. The coins are beautiful in themselves, thanks to the packing from Island Coins, and they are well-protected for safe & secure delivery. I will happily use Island Coins again in the near future!!
