SILVER BURST – 2021 Cook Islands 3oz silver proof coin

The human body is an amazing work of art. This incredible proof coin not only showcases that, but it also reminds all of us how fragile we can be. With all of the Information, facts, opinions, images, and news that we are bombarded with on a daily basis, this coin begs the question how much can the human vessel hold before it breaks?

This 3 oz  50mm .999 silver coin interprets this dilemma of limited human capacity in a modern and abstract way.

Thanks to the enhanced smartminting® technology this effect of a bursting body is depicted in an artistic way with a stunning combination of proof areas and ultra-high relief elements. Smooth areas of the body are shown to shatter and break apart like glass. This piece of minting art will let you start thinking what’s really left inside of you as you fall apart from overload. Will it be as empty and shallow as this design clearly shows?

This proof is truly a piece of art that is both beautiful and thought provoking. Limited mintage of only 999.


The obverse carries the Ian Rank Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II on it and is issued under the authority of the Cook Islands.
