Ships have been the topic of coin designers since the Phoenicians took to the seas. In modern times there have been hundreds of issues featuring all different types of watercraft, from Thor Heyerdahl’s raft that crossed the Pacific to multiple aircraft carriers, cruise liners and submarines. One of the more ubiquitous ship coins is the British Half Penny first issued in 1937 that features the “Golden Hind,” Sir Francis Drake’s famous galleon. If your collecting interest are inclined toward maritime issues, we have hundreds of ship coins for you to peruse. Happy sailing!
