The latest issue of the extremely successful Masterpieces of Art series, this eye-catching silver coin boasts a traditionally beautiful design, 16 genuine Swarovski crystals as well as the limited mintage (only 1818 pieces worldwide). Struck from 3 oz of .999 silver with a flawless proof quality, this Cook Islands coin is a tribute to Caspar David Friedrich and its painting “Wanderer above the sea of fog”.
The effigy of Queen Elizabeth II is traditionally featured on the obverse of the Cook Islands coin. There are also the legends denoting the Queen’s name, the face value of the coin and its issuing country.
The beautiful reverse of the coin displays a reproduction of the painting by Caspar David Friedrich. Friedrich executes a unique composition and employs his famous technique in Wanderer Above the Sea of Fog. His use of color and lighting is also notable. Around the reverse image, there are the inscriptions indicating the name of the series and the issuing year.
