The majestic Gryphon (en-GB) or Griffin (en-US) adorns the 5th issue of the popular Numismatic Icons series. In Greek mythology, this captivating hybrid of eagle and lion is regarded as guardian of gold and protector of precious treasures. As one of the most cherished mythological creatures of the Middle Ages, the Griffin remains a popular heraldic symbol to this day.

The original origin of these impressive Griffin coins is the ancient Thracian city of Abdera. The Griffin is accompanied by the Cicada, a popular additional motif on numerous ancient coins.

The CI characters on the reverse adhere to the tradition of ancient Greek coinage to indicate the respective place of origin.

Cook Islands now transfers this iconic symbol onto a modern 1 ounce silver coin. Utilizing enhanced smartminting® technology it combines the ancient design e.g. the uneven rim with a stunning ultra high relief. The fine details are further enhanced with a fantastic application of antique finish.
