Add a piece of American history trivia to your coin collection when you invest in one or more of the Lost States of America coins. The 2020 Proof Cook Islands Lost States of America Franklin 1 oz Silver Coin is one of four coins released in 2020, which was the first year of mintages for this series that will eventually include 20 total designs.
Benjamin Franklin’s left-facing portrait is included on the obverse of this coin. It’s surrounded by the inscriptions BEN FRANKLIN and STATE OF FRANKLIN. The date 1784 is also inscribed on the coin along with a number of stars.
The reverse of the coin includes a large image of an eagle flying over a mountainous landscape. The inscription E PLURIBUS UNUM is included on the image and the words LOST STATES OF AMERICA over the top. At the bottom, the standard design for the Cook Islands silver dollars appears, including the right-facing effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. That smaller coin image includes inscriptions 1 DOLLAR, COOK ISLANDS, ELIZABETH II and 2020.
The coin ships in a plastic capsule for protection. You can use the capsule for storage if desired.
The state of Franklin refers to an area that made a bid to become a state in the late 1700s. North Carolina proposed to give the area to the federal government to pay off some debts it owed. The area petitioned for statehood, even naming itself Franklin (or Frankland) to try to get support from Benjamin Franklin. The bid for statehood failed, making this one of the lost states of America.
