CoinGold Half Gram 2022 Big City Lights - New York

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 it:
The skyline of Manhattan is one of the most iconic in the world. The half gram gold piece has a highly detailed image of the skyline and is done in the style of art-deco.
