The unique silver ten-dollar coin minted by the Cook Islands in 2011 features the image of the statue of Kamakura’s Giant Buddha. The coin launched as a part of the World Monuments 3D series, performing the world-known objects in three dimensions. The image of Buddha plated with gold can be placed perpendicularly to the coin’s surface and also can make a usual 2D coin. The statue of Giant Buddha itself is made of bronze and located in the city of Kamakura since the ancient times. It is considered to be the landmark of Japan. The obverse of the coin shows the Queen’s effigy surrounded by the names of her and the country which issued the item. The reverse except Buddha’s monument bears the name of the series as well as the semicircular inscription indicating the name of the monument and its location. The face value of the coin is placed in the bottom of the reverse.
