Description

Ganesha is a Hindu deity widely regarded as the remover of obstacles. His characteristic elephant head makes him instantly recognizable and revered across South Asia and many religions including Hinduism, Jainism and Buddhism. Customarily, a small mouse accompanies Ganesha as his Vahana or vehicle.

The astonishing gilded sculpture of Lord Ganesha resembles CIT’s Shakyamuni Buddha issued in 2018. Like its predecessor, Ganesha is limited to only 501 pieces and struck in refined smartminting relief from approximately three ounces of fine silver. However, the complex shape and abundant details demonstrate the next step of minting performance.

The coins are individually numbered and issued for the Cook Islands.
