This spectacular Platinum coin from the South Pacific has a design that focuses on one of the most renowned ships to ever sail the waters of the South Pacific, the HMS Bounty. The Cook Islands, a sovereign state in free association with New Zealand, uses two official legal tender currencies. The New Zealand Dollar goes around in parallel with the local Cook Islands Dollar; simultaneously, the government also allows many legal tender coins in the Cook Islands Dollar currency for investment and collection purposes. Many of these are in common bullion sizes, including one ounce of Platinum, such as this coin.
