CoinSilver Two Ounces 2023 Iron Maiden - Piece of Mind

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 marks the 40th anniversary of Iron Maiden's album Piece of Mind.

The mint says about it:
Following the band’s chart-topping album "Number of The Beast", the pressure was on for Iron Maiden. However, their next release "Piece of Mind" in 1983 proved their ambition was unparalleled. Their 4th album was a critical and commercial success, reaching number three in the UK album charts and going platinum in the UK and North America. As a tribute to the 40th anniversary of "Piece of Mind", Eddie, Iron Maiden’s mascot, is featured on three exceptional issues. On a 2-ounce silver, a half-gram gold and a 5-gram silver note, he fights his shackles as an imprisoned maniac.

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 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 2023.

The effigy and inscriptions are small. Most of the obverse features thin grooves as those of a vinyl LP.
