The correct answer to our latest Mystery Coin competition is:

Ships That Changed The World – Cutty Sark 2012 1oz Silver Proof Coin.

Cutty_Sark

Cutty Sark‘s name derives from Robert Burns’ famous poem Tam O’ Shanter about a farmer called Tam who is chased by a witch dressed only in a ‘cutty sark’ – an old Scottish name for a short nightdress. The witch was portrayed as a figurehead on Cutty Sark’s bow.

The famous ship was badly damaged by fire in 2007 while undergoing conservation, but has since been restored and was reopened to the public in Greenwich, London in April 2012.

Built in 1869, Cutty Sark was one of the fastest clippers to transport tea from China to London. But with the growing success of steam ships on the shorter Suez Canal route, she turned to the trade in wool from Australia, where she held the record time to Britain for 10 years.

Congratulations to the following winners who submitted correct answers on Facebook or email (via the blog post):

  • Stephen Grieshaber
  • Harbeen Kaur
  • Heidi Layland
  • Vicki Emanuel
  • Steve Garlesky

If you didn’t win this time, please watch our Facebook page and blog for another Mystery Coin competition in the not too distant future.
