The Golden Hind was the Galleon that was captained by Sir Francis Drake when he navigated the Globe between 1577 and 1580. He acted as a privateer (essentially a pirate for the British Crown)
While sailing on this ship, he captured the biggest haul of treasure from a Spanish Galleon. The queen was able to pay off the government debt and have a huge sum left over from her share of this. As a result she asked for Drake to be knighted, she also requested that the Golden Hind be placed on permanent display as a museum ship.
