2015 $5 Fine Silver Proof Coin -The Story of Voc Batavia - Drama on the High Seas

Details

The Dutch East India Company’s ship, Batavia, was shipwrecked off the Western Australian coast on her maiden voyage in 1629, and was made famous by the battle of good versus evil on and off the ship during the seafaring adventure. When Batavia was shipwrecked, Commander Francisco Pelsaert along with 48 men left the ship and the remaining 268 people in search for help. Whilst gone, a group of mutineers led by Jeronimus Cornelisz took 125 lives of the remaining, including men, women and children. Upon Pelsaret’s return, the mutineers were either arrested or executed on site.
