Silver Ounce 2015 Peacock, Coin from Cook Islands
CoinSilver Ounce 2015 Peacock

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 one ounce of silver - such as this coin.

This is the first coin in the Magnificent Life collection by CIT Coin Invest.

The Mint says about it:
Few creatures can match the spectacular courtship display of a male peafowl, which even captivated Charles Darwin and led him to contemplate the concept of sexual selection. The new and aptly named Magnificent Life series portrays the peacock in all its glory. An astonishing high-relief and concave background combined with brilliant colouring create an almost life-like impression of this extraordinary bird.

Obverse
Cook Islands / Silver Ounce 2015 Peacock - obverse photo

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 2015.
