Silver Three Ounces 2020 Steampunk, Coin from Cook Islands
CoinSilver Three Ounces 2020 Steampunk

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 standard bullion sizes, including the large three ounces of silver format - such as this coin.

The Mint says about it:
Steampunk has become a cultural phenomenon. Having an impact on everything from film to fashion, this subculture of Science Fiction has grown in popularity and influence since it was first mentioned in the 1980’s. Loosely defined as combining Victorian age mechanical technology with modern applications, its unique look can be seen everywhere. In a nutshell Steampunk is what people thought about the future with their knowledge and techniques 200 years ago.

CIT is proud to introduce a coin that utilises the enhanced smartminting technology with ultra high relief of today combined with old world design elements that create a coin like no other. Look closely at all the mechanical detail this coin has! The selected gilding enhances the look as well as pays tribute to the striking contrast elements that are characteristic of Steampunk. You can almost envision this antique finished coin in motion!

Obverse

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 and the face value: ELIZABETH II COOK ISLANDS 20 DOLLARS STEAMPUNK.

The effigy and inscription are in a small circle, surrounded by representations of steam engine parts; around below right, a large inscription reads STEAMPUNK.

The reverse design represents a futuristic view in the "steampunk" style, with a person wearing a Victorian era top hat and gilded goggles in the foreground, and a cityscape in the background combining 19th century England elements with steam engines, a gold-gilded hot air balloon airship, a steam train and a person riding a penny-farthing bicycle.

On a cogwheel in the background, the date of issue 2020.
