Product Description

Canada: 2018 Special Edition Silver Dollar Proof Set: 240th Anniversary of Captain Cook at Nootka Sound

Finish: Proof

Composition: 99.99% Silver Dollar, and Base Metal Minors

Mintage: 15000

Design: Artist Maskull Lasserre combines elements of cartography, portraiture and maritime history to craft a poignant historical representation of Captain Cook at Nootka Sound on your coin. 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 the Mowachaht people. A 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 colour highlights the chief, the vessel commanded by Cook, and a profile portrait of the legendary navigator, who seemingly meets the whaler’s gaze. 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. The reverse includes the engraved word “CANADA” and the face value “DOLLAR”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Packaging: The set of Canadian coinage is safely enclosed in a leather book-style packaging that provides an elegant presentation time and time again, whether you’re proudly showcasing or repeatedly admiring this treasured addition to your collection.
