Silver Three Ounces 2021 Silver Burst, Coin from Cook Islands
CoinSilver Three Ounces 2021 Silver Burst

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 this coin:
The human body is an amazing work of art. This incredible proof coin not only showcases that, but it also reminds all of us how fragile we can be. With all of the Information, facts, opinions, images, and news that we are bombarded with on a daily basis, this coin begs the question how much can the human vessel hold before it breaks?

This 3 oz 50mm .999 silver coin interprets this dilemma of limited human capacity in a modern and abstract way. Thanks to the enhanced smartminting technology this effect of a bursting body is depicted in an artistic way with a stunning combination of proof areas and ultra-high relief elements. Smooth areas of the body are shown to shatter and break apart like glass. This piece of minting art will let you start thinking what’s really left inside of you as you fall apart from overload. Will it be as empty and shallow as this design clearly shows? This proof is truly a piece of art that is both beautiful and thought provoking.

Cook Islands / Silver Three Ounces 2021 Silver Burst - 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 COOK ISLANDS 20 DOLLARS.
