The Cook Islands are known for producing some beautiful coins that feature mother of pearl. This is unique in the world of precious metals coinage. Since 2016 marks the 100th anniversary of the creation of the Trans-Siberian Railway, the Cook Islands has decided to create a special coin to celebrate this monumental accomplishment. Right now, Provident Metals has the 2016 Proof Cook Islands Mother of Pearl 100th Anniversary Trans-Siberian Railway 5 oz Silver Coin available.
Each of these coins ship in a beautiful black case with a red-curtain box that features full-color artwork representative of the imagery on the coins. Included with your purchase is a numbered Certificate of Authenticity that proves the validity of the coin.
The obverse face of these coins bears the image of Queen Elizabeth II in right-profile portraiture. The Queen has appeared on all commonwealth coins since she took the throne in 1952. This is the fourth-generation image of the Queen used on commonwealth coinage since she became queen. It was created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley.
On the reverse, you will see the image of a steam locomotive barreling down the tracks of this railway in the mountainous region of Siberia. To finish the design, you will an olive-green piece of Mother of Pearl on the reverse side of these coins.
The Trans-Siberian Railway is 5,772 miles long, which makes it the longest railway line in the world. It connects Moscow to the port city of Bladivostok. Completion of the railway occurred in 1916.
These coins are minted by MDM, a German minting facility that is responsible for a variety of different coins each year. MDM produces both bullion and proof coins from numerous countries around the world.
