CoinSilver Ounce 2020 Lost States of America - Deseret

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.

The mint says about this coin:
Everyone knows that the United States of America comprises 50 states. These days it is hard to even imagine the nation any other way. But from the start in 1776 with the first 13 states all the way up to Hawaii becoming the 50th state in 1959, the country’s history has witnessed numerous attempts to establish alternative states that, had they been successful, could have drastically changed the map of North America.

To bring that history to life, the Cook Islands has released a Lost States of America coin series.

To bring this series to life, the Cook islands turned to award-winning artist Joel Iskowitz, a prolific coin and medal designer from New York, who designed more than 50 coins and medals for the U.S. Mint while part of its Artistic Infusion Program from 2005 to 2018. A student of history, Iskowitz based his designs on the unique stories of these Lost States of America.

Using Coin Invest Trust’s (CIT) Smartminting technology, the High Relief detail is so lifelike you’ll almost think you’re witnessing history as it unfolds in your hands! Plus, each coin comes in gorgeous Gem Proof condition, meaning they were all expertly crafted from hand-selected planchets, polished dies and multiple strikes to produce beautifully frosted details rising over mirror-like fields.

The Lost State of Deseret is the second release in the series. Deseret was a provisional state that was created by the settlers of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints led by Brigham Young that existed from 1849 to 1850 in Salt lake City. It encompassed nearly all of present-day Utah and Nevada, large portions of California, Arizona, and parts of Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming, Idaho, and Oregon.

Obverse
Cook Islands / Silver Ounce 2020 Lost States of America - Deseret - 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 1 DOLLAR COOK ISLANDS 2020.

The portrait and the inscriptions are smaller than usual and are in a circle in the lower part of the obverse.

The rest of the obverse design shows bees on a honeycomb.

Above, the motto E PLURIBUS UNUM; from Latin: "Out of many, one", signifying the "unity in diversity" of the United States.

Around above, the name of the series: LOST STATES OF AMERICA; around below left and right, eighteen stars.
