The HMS Bounty was purchased by the Royal Navy in 1787 and retrofitted for a special mission to the South Pacific. In an effort to find a source of food that was easier to grow and cheaper to nurture in the colonies of the West Indies, the Royal Navy dispatched the HMS Bounty to the island of Tahiti. The crew was to gather breadfruit plants to bring back to the West Indies and begin planting in the region.
The obverse side of 2021 Silver Cook Islands Bounty Coins features an image of Queen Elizabeth II. This design from Ian Rank-Broadley was created in 1998 for the Royal Mint of England and was the fourth-generation design used on British coins. It has been widely used throughout the Commonwealth and remains popular on coins for nations such as the Cook Islands.
On the reverse face of 2021 1 oz Silver Cook Islands Bounty Coins is a depiction of the infamous ship. The HMS Bounty spent several months in Tahiti gathering breadfruit plants, but the crew had become accustomed to life on the island chain and many had even taken local Tahitians as brides. Reticent to return home to England or go to the West Indies, many of the crew members engaged in a mutiny that resulted in the HMS Bounty eventually being scuttled and burned off the Pitcairn Islands.
