Silver Five Ounces 2022 The Seven Summits - Mount Vinson, Coin from Cook Islands - detailed information

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.

Collector coins are dedicated to historical or general popular culture themes not related to the country itself. Many of them are in standard bullion sizes, including the large five ounces of silver format - such as this coin.

This coin is part of The 7 Summits collection. The seven summits are the highest mountains on each of the seven continents and enthralling subjects of one of CIT Coin Invest’s series, which displays the peaks in topographic detail from an unusual bird’s eye perspective in solid 5 ounces of fine silver. The coins are in Ultra high Relief (UHR).

The mint says about the coin:
We have reached the final challenge in the pursuit of conquering the 7 Summits. A bone-chilling wind whips across as we battle our way through the Antarctic. Crossing snow-covered plains in an extremely hazardous part of the world. Before long, Mount Vinson looms before us, overlooking the icy wasteland.

Located on the southern part of the Sentinel Range, Antarctic’s highest mountain is more than 1,200 kilometres from the South Pole. It is the most remote of the Seven Summits. Covered in ice and snow, it was the last of the famous Summits to be discovered in 1957, climbed in 1966 and finally named in 2006. Hence, Mount Vinson is the perfect choice to complete our stupendous 7 Summits series.
