The Royal Mint has just released a superb tribute to a maritime legend - in 22-carat gold. With mintage limited to just 350 coins worldwide, the beautiful 2018 £2 Captain Cook's Voyage of Discovery Gold Proof has the exclusivity to match its stunning visage.

With lustrous 22-carat gold as its canvas, this coin is destined to delight. But it's the superb reverse motif from Sculptor Gary Breeze that elevates this work into a masterpiece. Breeze is a keen amateur sailor himself, and his passion shows. His richly-textured design incorporates the stern of Cook's famed vessel, the HM Bark Endeavour, along with his signature. The number '250' is proudly included in an ode to the landmark milestone.

There is plenty on offer for the eye here. Breeze's design is highly detailed. Set against a flan of variegated yellow and red gold hues, it's captivating.

With just 350 struck, few will have the chance to appreciate the beauty of this design first-hand.

Your new Proof coin arrives in a statesmanlike timber case. It's the perfect way to elegantly view and store such a prestigious new acquisition. Each coin is also accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.

With so few issued, and our allocation small, do not delay! Add this stunning Proof coin to your cart today.

Please note, due to a delay with the supplier, delivery for this release is now expected in late August.
