Here is an image of a Royal Mint sketch made for the occasion.

The artist is unknown. It is not a great sketch.

It's not just un-marvellous, it's the wrong ship type. A century too early.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

The ship that is depicted in the design is the Desire, which is depicted in the exact same way as in the coat of arms of the Falkland Islands.
