To mark the 250th anniversary of Captain Cook’s First Voyage to the Pacific 1768 – 1771, The Royal Mint has designed three beautiful £2 coins.

The first two coins, commemorating the Transit of Venus and the charting of New Zealand, are now on sale.  There are still some of the first coins on sale, commemorating the departure of Endeavour from Plymouth.  Both coins are available at the Captain Cook Museum in Grape Lane.

The coin for the third year of the Voyage will be issued in mid-2020.

The coins were designed by Gary Breeze. There are three editions available: Brilliant Uncirculated, Silver Proof and Gold Proof. Brilliant £12 and Silver £67.50 are on sale at the Museum. Gold £845 may be ordered through the Museum.

Whether you are a collector or admirer of Cook, or buy as a gift, the coins will be a handsome reminder of your visit to Whitby, where James Cook spent 9 years learning his trade, and where all four of his ships were built.

(Mail Order Registered Post and Packing included)

Brilliant Uncirculated: UK £14.25, Europe £15, Rest of World £15.80

Silver Proof: UK £71.40, Europe £76.25, Rest of World £78.45
