Product Details
Through a striking mix of symbolic imagery and selective color, this special edition proof dollar commemorates the 240th anniversary of Captain James Cook’s arrival and stay at Nootka Sound, on the west coast of Vancouver Island.

Set Highlights:
  • Contains a total of 2 oz of .9999 fine Silver distributed among seven different coins; a 1-dollar proof coin with selective Gold plating, 2-dollar coin with selective Gold plating, 1-dollar coin with selective Gold plating, and 50-cent, 25-cent, 10-cent and 5-cent coins.
  • All seven coins are struck in .9999 fine Silver.
  • This set comes in a genuine leather book-style packaging.
  • Obverse: Features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
  • Reverse: Artist Maskull Lasserre combines elements of cartography, portraiture and maritime history to craft a poignant historical representation of Captain Cook at Nootka Sound. Framed by nautical rope, the imposing beauty of the tree-lined coast edges the scene and suggests Cook’s presence at Nootka Sound as viewed from the perspective of Chief Maquina. The chief, wearing a distinctive hat associated with Mowachaht expertise in hunting whales, faces Cook and HMS Resolution, which was anchored in a cove on today’s Bligh Island. Selective color highlights the Chief, the vessel commanded by Cook, and a profile portrait of the legendary navigator. In the background, the topographic map of Vancouver Island is a nod to Cook’s legacy as a cartographer, while a circular location marker provides geographic context to this historic event.
