CoinSilver Two Ounces 2023 Masters of Art - Claude Monet

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 coin is the second issue in the Masters of Art series.

The mint says about it:
Pursuing our love for art, we are overjoyed to reveal another world-renowned painter as the second member of The Masters of Art series. Claude Monet (14 November 1840 - 5 December 1926) was one of the founders of French Impressionist painting. He embraced the movement's philosophy of expressing one's perceptions before nature, particularly in landscape painting. The master of art was particularly fond of the water lilies growing in the pond of his garden in Giverny. Monet composed several water lily series on the mentioned French estate, resulting in roughly 250 individual paintings until the end of his life. The painting in the background of Claude's self-portrait is on view in all its splendour at the Musée Marmottan Monet in Paris.
