** SOLD OUT **
When it comes to advanced minting technology, the Perth Mint is no stranger to exploring new numismatic territories. Their latest release commemorates Captain Cook and showcases some of the most innovative minting seen on a coin yet – so much so it’s a first-of-its-kind.
Featuring a spinning ship’s wheel at its centre, this coin is a world-first.
The significance of the ship’s wheel is a nod to the historic event this coin commemorates: 250th anniversary of the arrival of the HMS Bark Endeavour, captained by James Cook, in Australia. It is only fitting such an innovative coin is issued to celebrate this milestone anniversary.
We can only imagine the expertise required to strike such a piece. We must also mention it’s been expertly struck from 2oz pure silver to a stunning antique finish, meaning you can hold the coin in your hand and appreciate the 3D element.
HIGH DEMAND EXPECTED
JUST 1,770 single coins have been issued worldwide. When you consider the historic ties Captain Cook has to both Australia and the UK there will surely not be enough coins to satisfy collectors from one country, let alone both!
What’s more, similar innovative issues prove consistently popular with collectors. Just take the ‘Thermometer Coin’ that had an edition limit of 2,500 – that’s significantly more than this new issue – and completely sold out.
There’s proven high demand for Captain Cook commemoratives. The UK £2 Silver Proof Captain Cook coins, each with edition limits of 4,795, completely sold out within days of release.
