BRAND NEW Silver £5 issued to mark Captain Cook's Voyage of Discovery


Captain James Cook was an 18th century explorer and navigator who's incredible achievements included mapping the Pacific, New Zealand and Australia.

2020 marks the 250th Anniversary of this milestone Voyage of Discovery, and to celebrate, a stunning Silver Proof £5 coin has been released by Jersey treasury.

BRAND NEW Captain Cook Silver Proof £5 coin

This brand new coin has been struck from Sterling Silver, to a stunning Proof finish. Proof is the highest grade of finish found on collectable coins and one that is highly revered by collectors. Therefore befitting for this British legend.

The coins reverse is adorned by an illustration of Captain Cook by renowned artist David Young. This has been further finished with the addition of vivid colour – a true masterpiece.

Highly Sought-After

Unsurprisingly, demand for Captain Cook commemoratives is at an all-time high. With that in mind, I don’t expect to be able to offer this coin for long. Only 995 coins have been authorised for release worldwide – a surprisingly low amount given the theme.

Even more so when you consider that the 2018 and 2019 Silver Proof Captain Cook coins issued by The Royal Mint in the UK, each with edition limits of 4,795, completely sold out within days of release.
