2018 (1778-) Canadian $30 Captain Cook and the HMS Resolution 2 oz Fine Silver & Gold-plated Coin
Face Value: $30
Composition: 99.99% Silver
Weight (g): 62.69
Diameter (mm): 50
After exploring the South Pacific and crossing the Antarctic Circle in his first two voyages, Captain James Cook (1728-1779) turned his attention to the north for his third epic voyage, setting sail for the fabled Northwest Passage—a quest that brought his expedition to our western shores in 1778. Your gold-plated coin commemorates Cook’s historic arrival on the west coast of present-day Vancouver Island, near Yuquot, the summer home of the Mowachhat people. Rich in detail, your intricately engraved coin depicts HMS Resolution from the viewpoint of the native people who greeted and traded with the two-ship expedition that left an indelible impact on Canada’s early history.

Designed by Neil Hamelin, your coin depicts Captain Cook’s expedition sailing into Nootka Sound at the end of March 1778. Viewed from the ocean-going canoe in the foreground, HMS Resolution is a towering sight on the water, as the Mowachaht beach keeper and his companions are paddling out to greet the ship and its crew. Dressed in traditional clothing, the beach keeper stands with one arm raised while his right hand grips a paddle bearing a traditional motif. The reverse includes the engraved face value “30 DOLLARS” and the word “CANADA” and features a double date “1778-2018”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
