Silver Ounce 2016 Wasp Spider, Coin from Cook Islands
CoinSilver Ounce 2016 Wasp Spider

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 coin is part of the Magnificent Life collection by CIT Coin Invest.

The Mint says about it:
Magnificent life can be found anywhere - in tropical rainforests, remote deserts or in one’s own backyard. The colourful wasp spider occurs widely throughout Europe and Asia. It is portrayed in stunning high relief, seemingly crawling across the coin surface, on the second issue of the highly regarded Magnificent Life series. The delicate web, with the characteristic zigzag shaped stabilimentum and early morning dew drops, is minted on a concave surface, characteristic of the series.

Obverse
Cook Islands / Silver Ounce 2016 Wasp Spider - 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 small 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 2016.

Obverse Inscription ELIZABETH II 5 DOLLARS COOK ISLANDS 2016
Reverse
