No other British monarch in history could match the length of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign, and there are not many among the ranks of the United Kingdom’s rulers who could claim to have faced times of upheaval and political change like those that the Twentieth Century would provide. By the time she passed, the living members of the British public could recall no other monarch, and the reassuring steadiness with which she underpinned the popularity of the monarchy as an institution would become her legacy. Her death was the end of an era, memorialized by the 2022 Black Proof Cook Islands Memoriam Queen Elizabeth II 1 oz Silver Coin.
The 2022 Black Proof Cook Islands Memoriam Queen Elizabeth II Silver Coin features a beautiful Black Proof finish that accentuates the details of its engravings of Her Majesty. It comes with a unique Certificate of Authenticity in box packaging, nestled inside a protective capsule.
The obverse side features the globally known effigy of the Queen that has certified coinage all over the globe as legal tender, this coin included. This is joined by the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” “COOK ISLANDS,” and “5 DOLLARS.”
The reverse side of the coin features a frontal portrait of the Queen in her crown and pearls. This is accompanied above by the inscription “IN MEMORIAM QUEEN ELIZABETH II,” and her birth and death dates are inscribed beside her.
Rated by observers all over the world as one of the 20th Century’s most influential people, Queen Elizabeth II’s steadying influence and consummate image management was still on display as her reign extended into the 21st. During a reign that confronted a plethora of social, political and economic upheavals, she perfected the art of presenting Buckingham Palace as a stabilizing and unifying influence, standing for reassuring order balanced with equanimity in the face of change. She made it look deceptively easy, and only after her passing is it clear just how much her political skills defined an era not only in the United Kingdom but for the world at large.
