Silver Three Ounces 2021 Real Heroes - Firefighter, Coin from Cook Islands
CoinSilver Three Ounces 2021 Real Heroes - Firefighter

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 Firefighter design is the second in the Real Heroes coin series by CIT Coin Invest.

The mint says about it:
This is the second release in our “Real Heroes” series that follows the immensely popular “Pilot” coins. This time, we focus on the Firefighter. Nobody will forget the heroism of the Firefighter facing unimaginable circumstances during the 9/11 attacks. Images of courage and bravery seared into our consciousness forever. More recently, we have seen many images of these heroes in action fighting the wildfires of the world.

CIT is proud to honor this “Real Hero” by presenting the most stunning coin ever done of the Firefighter. A tribute to not only those who gave the ultimate sacrifice during 9/11, but to all Firefighters that we count on to keep us safe.

Obverse
Cook Islands / Silver Three Ounces 2021 Real Heroes - Firefighter - 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 20 DOLLARS COOK ISLANDS 2021.

The effigy and legend are in a small circle in the lower part of the design. The upper part shows two firefighters in heavy protective gear holding a fire hose; in the background, the "Twin Towers" of the World Trade Center in New York.

Below, the inscription ONLY THE BRAVE ARE FREE.

The whole obverse is black.

Below that, FDNY, for the New York City Fire Department.

The background has a honeycomb pattern; in one of the hexagons on the left, the REAL HERO logo of the series.

In the rim around left, in tiny letters the motto WE RUSH IN WHEN OTHERS RUSH OUT.
