Captain James Cook - On a UK coin for the first time and limited to just 5,000

• Silver Proof £2 release celebrating 250 years since Captain Cook’s voyage of discovery

• Limited to just 5,000 coins – 2,500 less than the last Silver UK £2 

• Featuring Cook’s famous ship, the Endeavour

• Struck in Proof from Sterling Silver


Why I recommend the Captain Cook Silver Proof £2 Coin…

This year marks the 250th anniversary of Captain Cook’s voyage of discovery when he was tasked with identifying the ‘southern continent’ that had been rumoured.

To honour the occasion The Royal Mint has announced a brand new £2 coin and given it an edition limit to make collectors sit up and take notice.

It has been limited to just 5,000. That’s 2,500 less than the last UK Silver £2, which was released for the RAF’s centenary. 5,000 looks low, especially for the first UK coin to feature James Cook.
