The HMS Bounty had humble origins as a private merchant vessel. Built in Yorkshire and berthed as the Bethia, the ship sailed as a merchant vessel from 1784 to 1787. In May 1787, the Royal Navy purchased the vessel for a total of 1,950 Pound sterling for a specific mission. The HMS Bounty was to sail from England to Tahiti to collect breadfruit plants that it would then bring to British colonies in the Caribbean. The HMS Bounty was never seen again outside of the South Pacific.

Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse side of 2022 Silver Cook Islands Bounty Coins. This is the popular fourth-generation portrait of the Queen that was designed by Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998 for the Royal Mint of England. Used widely throughout the Commonwealth Nations, this portrait shows the Queen wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara.
In the reverse design of 2022 1 oz Cook Islands Bounty Coins, the HMS Bounty is featured as it originally appeared when it was built in 1784. The ship was a three-masted sailing vessel that was purchased by the Royal Navy in May 1787 and retrofitted for its mission to the South Pacific with the addition of four 4-pounder cannons and ten swivel guns.
The crew of the HMS Bounty refused to return from the South Pacific after its mission to collect breadfruit plants. As the Bounty began to sail west to the Caribbean from Tahiti, the mutiny broke out and the crew took over the ship in a bloodless effort. The ship was navigated by the mutineers to Pitcairn Island, where it was eventually scuttled in an effort to hide its location.
