I own a 1772 Captain Cook Resolution and Adventure medallion and a matching silver medallion that I might sell.

Larry, thank you for your enquiry. As you will see in the above article, about 2,000 of the bronze medals were struck, but only 100 or so in silver. The bronze medal in very good condition might sell for up to £1,000, the silver medal maybe £2,000 or so. As with all coins and medals, their value depends upon the condition of the item being sold, and he above values are for medallions in very good condition.

Hello Tina, thank you for your enquiry. I know that the Royal Society's 1784 medal commemorating Captain Cook has been reproduced for sale as souvenirs. But I have not heard about the Resolution and Adventure medal being reproduced. But I would not be surprised, as the medals are now selling for prices which make replica's a cheap alternative for collectors.
