On 27th April 1789 tensions aboard HMS Bounty boiled over. As the ship left Tahiti for Britain - with its sailors reluctant to leave the lush island - Captain William Bligh's infamous ill temper started to provoke his crew to rebellion.
On 28th April the Bounty's crew mutinied. Bligh and eighteen sailors were forced into an overloaded launch and set adrift on the ocean. Remarkably most survived to return to Britain and be hailed as heroes.
In the meantime a small group of mutineers led by Fletcher Christian made their way to settle Pitcairn Island. Many years later the colony that they founded moved to Norfolk Island where their descendents still live today proud of their unique culture and language.
To commemorate the fateful mutiny the Royal Australian Mint has struck a 2019 al/bronze uncirculated $1 and $5 silver proof.
