Mint & Proof Sets. 2008 FIRST FLEET SILVER PROOF COIN & MEDALLION 13 PIECE JIGSAW Coin Set. This would have to be one of the most stunning modern issues. Modern Australia was founded from 1788 with the arrival of the FIRST FLEET from Britain. Carrying more than 1300 colonists, 11 ships entered Botany Bay between 18 and 20 January 1788. Captain Arthur Phillip was commander of the 1st Fleet. Finding the area unsuitable for permanent settlement, he immediately set about to resolve the problem by moving the colonists north to Port Jackson. He anchored at Sydney Cove on 26 January 1788. This amazing coin marks the 220th anniversary of the 1st Fleet’s arrival in Australia. These 11 medallions portray the 11 ships of the 1st Fleet.
