Gold Half Gram 2020 Harry Potter - Hogwarts Express, Coin from Cook Islands
CoinGold Half Gram 2020 Harry Potter - Hogwarts Express

The Cook Islands, a sovereign state in free association with New Zealand, uses two official legal tender currencies. The New Zealand Dollar circulates in parallel with the local Cook Islands Dollar; at the same time, the government also authorises many legal tender coins in the Cook Islands Dollar currency for collector's purposes. Many of them are in standard sizes, including the half gram (0.5 g) of gold mini-coin format - such as this coin.

This ingot-shaped coin is one of a series of 12 coin mini-bars featuring characters and themes from the Harry Potter series of books and films, and features the Hogwarts Express.

"The Hogwarts Express ran between London, King's Cross Station Platform 9 3/4 and Hogsmeade Station. This train would carry the students to and from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and the start and end of each school term."
