Celebrating its 650th birthday in 2022, the Leaning Tower of Pisa is one of the world’s most instantly recognizable landmarks. It’s also the subject of the latest issue in the Cook Islands’ thematically diverse and brilliantly designed commemorative coin program. The 2022 Cook Islands Leaning Tower of Pisa 2 oz Silver Coin, featuring ultra high-relief artwork, is now available from Provident Metals.
Sporting a rich antique finish and featuring some of the most exquisitely detailed ultra high-relief medallic artwork available anywhere, made possible by proprietary smartminting technology, the 2022 Cook Islands Leaning Tower of Pisa Silver Coin is sure to be a coveted collectible. Provident Metals ships these coins in individual, protective plastic packaging. We fully insure each and every shipment against the unlikely possibility of loss or damage.
Thanks to an unstable foundation, the free-standing bell tower of the Pisa Cathedral was leaning even as it was first completed in 1372, and remained famous for that signature flaw ever since. Restored and propped up multiple times over the centuries and known to the modern world as one of the most photographed structures of all time, the Leaning Tower of Pisa is as iconic as buildings get.
What’s truly unusual about this coin is that both the obverse and reverse sides carry authentically detailed and intricate representations of the Leaning Tower standing out vividly from the surface. On the obverse, a stylized interpretation of a frontal view of the Pisa Cathedral forms a backdrop, with the inscriptions “Leaning Tower of Pisa,” “1372 – 2022” and “650 Years.”
The reverse side’s Leaning Tower is accompanied by a profile image of the Pisa Cathedral in the background, along with a miniaturized version of the profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II that normally dominates the reverse of Commonwealth coins. It bears the inscriptions “Queen Elizabeth II,” “Cook Islands” and “10 Dollars.”
