Description

Pobjoy Mint is delighted to announce a brand new 50p coin featuring a tall ship. The coin is on behalf of South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands Government and features the HMS Resolution in honour of the 250th Anniversary of the Ship's Launch.

In 1775, Captain Cook made the first landing, surveying and mapping of South Georgia in the HMS Resolution. As instructed by the admiralty, on 17th January 1776, he took possession of the Island for Britain and renamed the land "Isle of Georgia" for King George III.

The design of our stunning new 50p coin features Cook's ship, the HMS Resolution, which was a sloop of the Royal Navy that called it "the Ship of my Choice and the fittest for service of any I have seen". The obverse of the coin features the exclusive Pobjoy Mint effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
