Silver Two Ounces 2018 AC/DC - Black Ice, Coin from Cook Islands
CoinSilver Two Ounces 2018 AC/DC - Black Ice

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 two ounces of silver format - such as this coin.

This coloured two-ounce silver coin was issued as part of the coin series celebrating world-famous Australian rock group AC/DC, and features the band's fifteenth album, Black Ice (2008).

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 Mint says about the coin:
CIT is proud to issue officially licensed AC/DC coins for collectors at ANA 2018. Two silver coins reference the band's first album High Voltage and the ten year anniversary of the superb album Black Ice. The latter coin is produced in striking black proof finish with colour highlights and outstanding smartminting relief.

Obverse
Cook Islands / Silver Two Ounces 2018 AC/DC - Black Ice - 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 10 DOLLARS COOK ISLANDS 2018.
