On the obverse of the 2023 Cook Islands Arethusa Gold Coin, you’ll find a masterful depiction of Queen Elizabeth II in right-profile relief, immortalized by Ian Rank-Broadley’s iconic 1998 design for the Royal Mint. This revered design has graced countless coin programs across the Commonwealth. Inscriptions on this side read ELIZABETH II, 5 DOLLARS, COOK ISLANDS, and 2023.

Enhanced by the graceful presence of dolphins in front and behind her head, and adorned with the CI initials of the Cook Islands, this design is a testament to the coin’s captivating beauty.


After being transformed into a spring, Arethusa found herself flowing underground, eventually emerging in the island of Ortygia in Syracuse, Sicily. In this new form, she retained her identity as Arethusa and became a famous fountain.
