Description

In 1849, thousands of eager prospectors headed for California to look for gold in “them thare hills”. Many sailing ships full of hopeful miners – the 49ers – sailed from the East Coast, braving the perilous “rounding of the Horn”. Today, only one of the original 242 ships setting out on that epic voyage remains – the “Vicar of Bray” – stranded in Goose Green harbour and preserved by its icy waters.

This beautiful coin issue from the Falkland Islands shows this historic vessel in her prime, moored in San Francisco. This coin was produced in the following metals: • Proof Fine 999.9 1/5oz Gold • Proof Sterling Silver • Unc. Cupro Nickel
