On the obverse of the 2023 Antique Tortoise 1 oz Gold Coin, you’ll find the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley, featuring Her Majesty in right-profile relief adorned with the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland diamond tiara. The portrait is encircled by identifying marks. Inscriptions include 250 DOLLARS, COOK ISLANDS, 2023, IRB, ELIZABETH II, and 1 OZ AU .9999.


The reverse side of the 2023 Antique Cook Islands Tortoise Gold Coin beautifully showcases the tortoise, offering a bird’s eye view of the creature, complete with its four legs and intricate shell. Thanks to Smartminting technology, the tortoise seems to come to life right off the coin’s surface. Inscriptions read CI.


The Numismatic Icons series, introduced by CIT in 2020 with the silver version of this coin, revives ancient Greek coinage using cutting-edge technology. It comprises four unique designs, including the tortoise, Athena’s Owl, Pegasos, and Arethusa.
