The HMS Bounty was originally known as the Bethia, built in 1784 in the Blaydes shipyard in Yorkshire, England. Though relatively small at just 215 tons, it had three masts and full rigging. Its first and only voyage in Royal Navy service was on the breadfruit expedition.
Queen Elizabeth II features on the obverse of the 2020 1/10 oz Cook Islands Bounty Gold Coins. This effigy of the Queen is the popular Ian Rank-Broadley design. Originally issued by the Royal Mint of England starting with the 1998 date mark, the design saw use on British coins through 2015, on Australian coins from 1999 to 2019, and remains in use in New Zealand, Niue, Tuvalu, and the Cook Islands. In the reverse design element, 2020 1/10 oz Cook Islands Bounty Gold Coins feature an image of the HMS Bounty.
The HMS Bounty was to sail for Tahiti and collect breadfruit plants. The experiment involved bringing the plants from the South Pacific to the West Indies to see if the plants could be grown sustainably in the region to provide cheap food for slaves in the Caribbean colonies of the British Empire.
