CoinSilver Half Ounce 2011 Forever Love

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 bullion sizes, including half of a troy ounce of silver - such as this coin.

This coin is part of the Forever Love gift range by the Perth Mint.
