About the Design

The Story of the Pitcairn Islands is one that is wedded to the story of the H.M.A.V. Bounty, a ship made famous due to a historic mutiny that has been retold in numerous films, television series and books. When Fletcher Christian along with 8 Mutineers and 19 Polynesian men and women first settled the island, their connection to the Bounty could not be completely set aside. Even though the charred remains of the Bounty lie at rest beneath the waters of Bounty Bay, the relics of the ship have survived to become icons of the island and its current inhabitants. These icons feature on the reverse of each coin in the 2009 Pitcairn Island Brilliant Uncirculated Coin Set.

The New Zealand Mint takes pleasure in the creation of this historic coin collection, brought to you with the endorsement of the Pitcairn Islands Office.
