This incredible coin is devoted to the 250th anniversary of James Cook’s voyage of discovery.
Remind you that James Cook was a famous explorer who, in 1770, discovered and charted New Zealand and the Great Barrier Reef of Australia on his ship HMB Endeavour. Furthermore, he later disproved the existence of Terra Australis, a fabled southern continent. His voyages were very significant for people as they greatly helped explorers to guide and provided the first accurate map of the Pacific.
This coin is made in honor of James Cook. That is why his portrait is depicted in a highly-detailed way on the obverse. James Cook's Discovery coin is made of pure silver with an impressive ultra-high relief! The peculiar feature of the given coin is a translucent blue enamel that is combined with detailed relief.
