The South Pacific is home to some of the greatest maritime mysteries and unbelievable events of history. Among the many vaunted stories to come from this region was the Mutiny on the Bounty, the moment when the crew of the Royal Navys HMS Bounty rebelled to take control of their ship and remain in the South Pacific. Today, you have the chance to get 2021 Cook Islands Bounty 1/10 oz Silver Coins online from Provident Metals.
The ship that went down in history as the HMS Bounty was first christened as the Bethia when it was built at Blaydes Yard in Hull, Yorkshire, England. The ship was built to serve as a private merchant vessel. When the Royal Navy purchased the ship in 1787, it paid a total of 1,950 Pound sterling for the ship. It was retrofitted with four 4-pound cannons and ten swivel guns along its decks.
On the obverse of the 2021 Cook Islands Bounty 1/10 oz Silver Coin is a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. In this right-profile relief, Her Majesty is shown wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. This design was created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley for the Royal Mint of England. The design field includes inscriptions of ELIZABETH II, COOK ISLANDS, and 2021.
The reverse side of 2021 Cook Islands Bounty Silver Coins comes with an image of the HMS Bounty. The three-masted ship was relatively small for the purposes of the Royal Navy, displacing just 215 tons. This side of the coin comes with a uniquely textured background field and inscriptions of 10 CENTS, 1/10 OZ, FINE SILVER, and .9999.
The HMS Bounty set sail on its maiden voyage for the Royal Navy in December 1787. Its mission was to sail to Tahiti to harvest breadfruit plants to bring to British colonies in the Caribbean as a cheap, fast-growing source of food for its slave populations. The crew of the Bounty eventually launched a mutiny when the Bounty was set to leave Tahiti, steering the ship to Pitcairn Island where it was burned and scuttled.
