The Golden Hind (or Golden Hinde) 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, and was renamed by Drake in mid-voyage in 1577, as he prepared to enter the Straits of Magellan, calling it the Golden Hind to compliment his patron, Sir Christopher Hatton, whose armorial crest was a golden hind (the heraldic term for a doe).
