CoinSilver Ounce 2022 Legacy of the Pharaohs

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:
Ancient but still super trendy! How else can you explain the continued fascination of Egyptian history? Millions of tourists every year still flock to catch a glimpse of the Great Pyramids of Giza and discover the rich cultural heritage.

CIT is proud to release a collection of coins that capture all of the grandeur and splendour of the Pharaohs and the architectural wonders that were built to honour them. Each of these smartminted ultra-high relief coins shows three different Pharaohs on the reverse and an incredible birds-eye view of the Giza Necropolis on the obverse. The three Pharaohs featured are Akhenaten, Thutmosis III, and Sobekneferu, the first female Pharaoh. They are seen standing next to each other in incredible relief. Behind them are hieroglyphics from the ancient artefact “The Stele of Revealing” which resides in the Boulak Museum in Cairo.

The obverse of this coin is really amazing and shows the great Pyramids of Giza in stunning relief and detail. You can literally count the different layers of brick on each Pyramid! Look closely and you can also see the Sphinx rising off the surface. There are also plenty of other structural details to feast your eyes upon.

The Pharaohs and the culture that surrounded them has stood the test of time for thousands of years and will continue to fascinate and amaze for generations to come.

Obverse
Cook Islands / Silver Ounce 2022 Legacy of the Pharaohs - 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 2022.

The Queen's effigy and the inscriptions are on a small domed circle below right. The rest of the surface of the obverse is a detailed representation of the Giza Necropolis, in ultra high relief.
