CoinSilver Three Ounces 2021 Steampunk - Jet Pack

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:
Following the wave of enthusiasm unleashed by the first issue of our Steampunk coin, we are thrilled to announce the next masterpiece of the series. This one, like its predecessor, astounds with lots of details, surreal elements and hidden allusions to the famous author Jules Verne. Good luck in finding them!

The scenario on this piece of art could be a busy train station in a mountain village with different means of transportation including a jet pack which might be part of our mobility system in future.

The unique look of this 3 oz silver coin derives from our refined smartminting ultra-high relief technology and its selective gilding contrasting elegantly with an antique finish background.

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 tiny 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.

Reverse

The reverse design represents a futuristic view in the "steampunk" style, with a person wearing a gilded backpack in the foreground - the word Jules inscribed on his left shoulder, the date of issue 2021 on the backpack, and NEMO on the control board around his waist.

In the background, a mountain railway station with a steam train with its gold-plated front representing a clock face, a person riding a penny-farthing bicycle, another one with wings, and an overhead tram line - among other things.
