Cook Islands 2002 Jubilee Jewels 1 Dollar Silver BU
Australia's Perth Mint has come up with a concept that is truly revolutionary. It is like having an old fashioned kaleidoscope in the middle of a coin! And not only is it a kaleidoscope, but the bits of color are actually precious stones – at least 1 ˝ carats of rubies, sapphires and cubic zirconia float within the silver coin. This 2002 legal tender coin commemorates the British Crown Jewels. They have been authorized by the Government of Cook Islands, a member of the British Commonwealth. The coins werereleased to coincide with the Golden Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth’s Accession to the Throne. The last time a Golden Jubilee was celebrated in Britain was for Queen Victoria in 1887. The Crown Jewels commemoratives are limited to 50,000 Silver Dollars containing .80 troy oz. of pure (999 fine) silver. Choice Prooflike Brilliant Uncirculated quality.
