Known by most Australians as the first to chart the east coast of our great land, Captain James Cook's discoveries went well beyond that journey that formed today's nation.

Arriving in Tahiti in 1768, Cook's task was to observe the Transit of Venus, an astronomical mission that would change scientific views of the solar system. This Royal Mint £2 issue celebrates the journey to Tahiti with a design featuring the mast of Cook's famous ship, HM Bark Endeavour , below a celestial image of the Transit of Venus.

Each official UK issue is housed in typically high quality Royal Mint packaging.
