Originally released in 2009 to coincide with the 230. Anniversary of its subject’s untimely death, the sensational 2009 Captain Cook Silver Proof Coin Collection unites four superbly-designed 1oz silver Proofs struck by the Perth Mint, in a tribute to one of Australia’s greatest explorers. Unsurprisingly met with tremendous demand, this excellent set was to remain consigned to the history books forever following sell-out at its release – until now! With a small number recently sourced, Macquarie Mint is delighted to once again be able to offer it to collectors. Be warned, though – with miniscule numbers in stock, swift action is a must. Proof , total weight 4 oz. Of pure 0.999 silver. 1,779 sets issued. All four Proof coins contained within this set bear splendid reverse designs, each imbued with the letters spelling Cook’s surname. Selective full-colour embellishment adds an additional layer of contrast to each scene: a third voice rising above the dialogue between glassy, mirror-like surfaces and frosted fields. Upon their shared obverse, the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II confirms the coins’ status as official legal tender – fittingly – of the Cook Islands. All four designs come alive when struck to dazzling Proof quality by Australia’s precious metal experts, the Perth Mint. Each imposing, 40mm coin is crafted from 1oz of 99.9% silver. An opulent timber case, complete with plush interior, becomes the ultimate foundation upon which to appreciate the incredible craftsmanship of these four Proofs.
