The Golden Hind was an English galleon best known for its global circumnavigation between 1577 and 1580, captained by Sir Francis Drake. She was originally known as the Pelican, but was renamed by Drake mid-voyage in 1578, as he prepared to enter the Strait of Magellan, calling it the Golden Hind to compliment his patron, Sir Christopher Hatton, whose armorial crest was a golden 'hind' (a female deer). For 30 years, the Golden Hind adorned the reverse of the English halfpenny to commemorate this astounding achievement. It was finally abandoned in 1969 as part of the process of decimalizing the British currency.
