The Cook Island Silver Coins

The Cook Island is an island country located in the South Pacific Ocean between Fiji and French Polynesia. The country consists of 15 volcanic islands and coral atolls and occupies over 770,000 square miles, being named after Captain Cook, who explored the islands in 1773. The Cook Islands are renowned for issuing one of the most luxurious and precious coins in the world, as well as incredibly detailed designed silver coins with magnificent appearance, like the Norse Gods Coins Series. However, as the Cook Islands Mint issues only circulation coins, the majority of these remarkable bullion coins are manufactured at several other well-known international mints, like the New Zealand Mint or BH Mayer Mint. Cook Islands Coins are famous among investors and collectors because each coin has a unique finish and an irresistible design. From colored coins to antique coins, each Cook Islands coin is an exclusive piece of coinage craftsmanship, making them sought-after collectibles for passionate numismatists.

Cook Island Silver Coins Sizes and Designs

Cook Island Silver Coins are prominent thanks to their exclusive, luxurious designs and modern look. The coins are manufactured in several international mints but are legal tender coins in the Cook Islands. From antique coins to mother of pearl finishes, Cook Islands Coins are state-of-the-art pieces of silver coinage, available in different shapes and sizes, including the most common 1/10 oz., ¼ oz., ½ oz. and 1 oz. weights, as well as bigger sizes of 2 oz. and 5 oz. Most of the Cook Island Silver Coins are struck of .999 pure silver, but some issues, like the Bounty coin, are made of .9999 finest silver. The most popular coin series are, without doubts, the Norse Gods series, the Milestones of Global Trade Series and the Mother of Pearl Series.

Norse Gods Coin Series

Among many Cook Island Silver Coins, the Norse Gods Coins Series are the brand new silver coin series which consists of 9 coins that celebrate the Norse mythology. Even though the North Germanic mythology isn’t so famous as the Greek-Roman mythology, over the last years it gained tremendous popularity due to the representation of the Norse Gods in several movies. The Norse Gods Coin Series was released to honor the culture of Vikings and Scandinavians. Each Norse Gods Coin depicts one of the gods, Odin, Thor, Tyr, Hel, Heimdall, Loki, Frigg, Sif, and Freyr, and is made of 2 oz. of .999 pure silver with an ultra-high-relief proof finish and an antique appearance. On the reverse side of the coin is depicted the famous portrait of Queen Elizabeth II designed in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley. The coins are produced by the BH Mayer Mint and are sold in special capsules accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity and a presentation box. Every coin within the series is issued in only 1,000 pieces, making these Cook Island Silver coins a rare set of remarkably designed collectibles for investors and collectors all over the world.

Milestones of Global Trade Series

The Milestones of Global Trade Series are one of the newest Cook Island Silver Coins Series. Each coin has a rectangle shape, being made of ½ oz. of .999 pure silver and featuring an iconic design associated with global trade. The first three coins of the series were issued in 2015 and featured the image of the US Bullion Depository, Fort Knox, followed by the classic Bull and Bear image and the image of California Gold Rush 1848-1854 on the obverse side of the coins. On the reverse side of each coin is depicted the profile portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The coins are legal tender in the Cook Islands, with a face value of $2 and are sold in a special capsule in a collector’s folder.

Mother of Pearl Series

The Mother of Pearl Cook Island Silver Coins series is one of the most luxurious coin series issued under Cook Islands’ legal tender. Each coin within the series is made of 5 oz. finest .999 silver with a brilliant mother of pearl finish on the obverse side. The series is available in two different sets, Transport and Lunar, bearing the face value of $50 for issues up until 2014, and a $25 denomination on the coins produced starting with 2015. The Lunar Mother of Pearl Series started in 2012 with the Year of Dragon coin and followed by the Year of Snake (2013), Year of Horse (2014), Year of Goat (2015) and the Year of Monkey (2016). Each Mother of Pearl Lunar coin is issued in only 888 pieces and depicts on the obverse side of the coin the image of the Chinese Zodiac character, and, on the reverse side, the image of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The Transport Mother of Pearl Series also began in 2012, with the 100 Year Anniversary of Titanic, and was followed by 175th anniversary of the German Zeppelin (2013), the legendary “Nautilus” submarine of Jules Verne (2014), the Mississippi Steamboat of Mark Twain (2015) and the 100th anniversary of the Trans-Siberian Railway (2016).
