The sinking of theRMS Titanicis one of the most iconic stories in modern history, a tragedy that became a symbol of technological hubris. A Cook Islands coin program from the Coin Investment Trust commemorates this tragedy with a series of precious collectibles with a unique touch. One of the few items to be recovered from the wreck, in the year 2000, was a piece of coal that now contributes souvenir insets to each coin in a set of limited mintages sure to be prized by collectors. This includes the 2022 Proof Colorized Cook Islands Titanic 1912 1 oz Gold Coin, now available from Provident Metals.
The 2022 Proof Colorized Cook Islands Titanic 1912 Gold Coin depicts theTitanicin ultra high-relief engravings with proof-quality mirrored backgrounds, render in beautifully subtle color. It comes in a windowed display case, secured in a mint capsule and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
An official effigy of Elizabeth II appears on the coin’s obverse side with numerous accompanying art and inscriptions. Her image is framed by a map of the planned route for the maiden voyage, with deck plans of the ship appearing below with an inset of authenticTitaniccoal over its smokestacks. These are surrounded by “Elizabeth II,” “250 Dollars,” “Cook Islands” and “2022,” while inscriptions at the rim detail the specs of the ship.
The reverse side shows theTitanicentering an iceberg field, in all probability just before the disaster that sank it. Exquisitely engraved and colorized, it’s accompanied by the inscription “TITANIC” below.
The product of intense competition between shipping lines in the early 20th century, theRMS Titanicbelonged to a trinity of vessels that were designed to be the last word in size, spaciousness, and luxury in passenger liners. When it struck the iceberg that sank it, theTitanictook more than 1500 people to an icy grave. Many observers expressed shock at the event and professed to have thought the ship “unsinkable,” and the disaster has captured popular imagination ever since.
