Captain James Cook Proof Crown In Capsule

Captain James Cook on his three voyages to the South Pacific, mapped all of New Zealand, much of the East Coast of Australia, found the Sandwich Islands and South Georgia. He was also the first European to begin formal contact with the Hawaii Islands. Which was unfortunate, as when he returned there, there was a terrible fight and he was killed in 1779. This handsome silver plated diamond shaped coin from Tristan da Cunha honours this great explorer. You have Captain James Cook on one side with his sailing ship and a ships wheel behind him. The other side has H.M. the Queen. Each large sized diamond shaped crown comes in a unique heavy plastic capsule to protect the proof surface. A great man and a wonderful coin, what more could you ask for?
