Eclecticism is about combining or mixing different styles, theories or ideas to gain complementary insights into a subject or topic. We transferred this approach onto a coin which depicts a vibrant Fighting Fish.
This species is known for its bright, beautiful coloration and elaborate fin displays.
What makes this piece eclectic? Well, on one hand, it’s been split it into two halves, one with a mirrored proof finish and silk black finish on the other, giving this coin a stark contrast. The fighting fish itself is set on top of this in ultra-high relief and colorized with an incredibly high level of sophistication which perfectly matches the different backgrounds.
These beautiful fine silver coins are issued as legal tender by Cook Islands.
