Description

Nautical themed coins are no standard fare at CIT. Game changers like the 2016 Great Tea Race and 2017 Pirate Skull set the bar high. The Anchor, officially introduced at the Berlin World Money Fair, certainly delivers in this regard.

Struck from two ounces of fine silver, the background has a black proof finish from which the polished silver anchor protrudes in an incredible blend of smartminting high relief and finest quality lustrous silver gleaming along the stark ridges as the light moves across the surface of the coin.

The Anchor is limited to 999 pieces and issued for the Cook Islands with its important seafaring history. The coin symbolizes the romantic era of discovery and our dependency on good weather and helplessness against the elements. Hopes and fears that James Cook himself would have undoubtedly experienced when first sailing the South Seas.
