This incredible proof coin not only showcases the human body as a work of art, but it also reminds us of how fragile we are at any moment. The 2021 Proof Silver Burst is dedicated to the human body and its remarkable ability to consume and store as much information as possible. The bursting fractals beg the question of how much can the body hold in before it explodes.
Struck by Germany's Mayer Mint using CIT's Smartminting© technology and released on behalf of the Cook Islands as legal tender, this coin has a face value of $20. Each coin was struck with an impressive Proof Ultra High Relief finish from three full ounces of highly pure .999 fine silver.
The reverse design depicts the effect of the human body bursting from too much overloading. The ultra high relief finish enhances the smooth areas of the body that are shown to shatter like glass. The obverse side of the coin features the portrait of her majesty Queen Elizabeth II, encircled by inscription of her name, the country of issue, and the denomination.
Each coin will arrive housed in an acrylic holder in its original mint packaging accommodated by the Certificate of Authenticity. In addition, this 2021 Cook Islands 3oz Proof Silver Burst has been limited to a worldwide low mintage of just 999 pieces!
