As competition heated up in the business of nautical shipping and passenger travel in the early 20th century, the British company White Star Lines found itself going head-to-head with the venerable Cunard Line, whose passenger liners were known for superior speed. To set their fleet apart, White Star conceived and designed theOlympicclass of cruise liners, meant to be the last word in both scale and opulence. The second of these three ships would be the most famous of them, theRMS Titanic,and its fame would be owed to the most famous maritime disaster of all time: the great liner’s own sinking, whose 110th Anniversary is paid tribute by the 2022 Proof Cook Islands Titanic 1912 1/2 Gram Gold Coin.
The 2022 Proof Cook Islands Titanic 1912 Gold Coin is the product of cutting-edge SmartMinting technology and features brilliant mirrored backgrounds with high-relief engravings as befits a true proof-quality coin. It comes in its original mint capsule with a Certificate of Authenticity, and each shipment is fully insured by Provident Metals.
An effigy of Elizabeth II, designed by Ian Rank-Broadley, is featured on the coin’s obverse side to confirm it as legal tender of the free association dependency of the Cook Islands. The image is surrounded by the inscriptions “Elizabeth II,” “5 Dollars,” “Cook Islands” and “2022.”
The coin’s reverse side shows a high-relief image of theTitanicattempting to navigate the iceberg field that will eventually prove its downfall. The inscription “TITANIC” accompanies the image.
The dramatic tragedy of theTitanichas been irresistible to the popular imagination for over a century since it happened. The tale of the majestic and doomed ocean liner has spawned songs and poems, concerts and musicals, countless documentaries, and almost a score of films. It has been seen as everything from a romantic, poignant drama to a cautionary tale of the hubris of modern civilization. The legend and its various readings and interpretation is still going strong as of the 110th Anniversary marked by the issuing of this coin.
