Silver Quarter Ounce 2019 AC/DC - Guitar Pick, Coin from Cook Islands
CoinSilver Quarter Ounce 2019 AC/DC - Guitar Pick

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.

Collector coins are dedicated to historical or general popular culture themes not related to the country itself. Many of them are in bullion sizes based on the troy ounce, including the small quarter ounce of silver format - such as this coin.

This silver coin shaped as a guitar pick was issued as part of the coin series celebrating world-famous Australian rock group AC/DC.

AC/DC are an Australian rock band formed in Sydney in 1973 by Scottish-born brothers Malcolm and Angus Young. Although their music has been variously described as hard rock, blues rock, and heavy metal, the band themselves call it simply "rock and roll". The band's line-up varied throughout the years; it did not disband though, and issued its latest album in 2020, 47 years after it was founded.

The obverse of the coin shows the crowned mature head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right (her effigy known as the "Fourth Portrait").

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 2 DOLLARS COOK ISLANDS 2019.

Around above, the metal content: 1/4 oz FINE SILVER .999 (one quarter of a troy ounce of 99.9% silver).
