To celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the Cutty Sark being built, Pobjoy Mint is pleased to announce the new release of an Uncirculated Cupro Nickel coin that features the magnificient Cutty Sark, on the behalf of the British Indian Ocean Territory.
The Cutty Sark is a British Clipper ship that was built on the river Clyde in 1869. She was one of the last tea clippers to be built and one of the fastest, coming at the end of a long period of design development, which was when sails started to be substituted for steam.
So batten down the hatches with our new two pound coin showing this magnificent clipper and the route she took as it travelled near to the British Indian Ocean TerritoryThe Pobjoy Mint exclusive Effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is shown on the obverse of the coin. This stunning coin is housed in a stunning Pobjoy Mint blue pouch.Show more
The Cutty Sark sailed in eight “tea seasons”, from London to China and back .The ship was launched on the 22nd November 1969 destined for the tea trade, then sailed an intensely competitive race across the globe from China to London crossing the Indian Ocean before rounding the Cape of Good Hope and returning to England. The maximum speed the Cutty Sark achieved was 17.5kn (32.4 km/h) and 1542 tonnes in capacity.
