CoinGold Half Gram 2022 Legacy of the Pharaohs

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.

The Mint says about this coin:
Ancient but still super trendy! How else can you explain the continued fascination of Egyptian history? Millions of tourists every year still flock to catch a glimpse of the Great Pyramids of Giza and discover the rich cultural heritage.

CIT is proud to release a collection of coins that capture all of the grandeur and splendour of the Pharaohs and the architectural wonders that were built to honour them.

Obverse

The obverse of the coin shows the crowned mature head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right (her effigy known as the "Fourth Portrait"). The Queen wears the "Girls of Great Britain and Ireland" diamond tiara, a wedding gift from Queen Mary (Her Majesty's grandmother) in 1947 - which she also has on the Machin and the Gottwald portraits.

In tiny letters below the head, the artist's initials IRB (for Ian Rank-Broadley).

Around the effigy is the monarch's legend, the date of issue and the value: ELIZABETH II 5 DOLLARS COOK ISLANDS 2022.
