CoinSilver Two Ounces 2023 Train - Steam Dream

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.

The mint says about it:
Following our joyful outings on the high seas, in lofty heights and on wide roads, we are now travelling on rails with the fifth edition of the endeared The Journey series. How marvellous when loved ones wave goodbye on the platform and see the smoke billowing from the chimney as the metal giant slowly rumbles and rattles off into the wide world. Long before the most famous wizard travelled aboard the Hogwarts Express or Hercule Poirot pursued murderers in the luxurious Orient Express, one of mankind's most remarkable inventions sparked progress, adventure, and excitement - the steam locomotive.

Obverse
Cook Islands / Silver Two Ounces 2023 Train - Steam Dream - 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 2023.
