The precious rectangular coin made of pure silver was minted by the Cook Islands in 2012. The piece is dedicated to the Year of the Dragon, which was the reigning animal of 2012 according to the Chinese Lunar Calendar. The silver 1-dollar coin contains 20 g of fine precious metal, so it is a good investment, besides its collectible value. The piece is housed in the Chinese-style wooden demonstration case and has the original CoA. The bar’s obverse is traditional for the Cook Islands with the portrait of the head of the Commonwealth minted on it. The effigy is surrounded by the name of the territory, the name of the monarch and the coin’s denomination. The reverse is decorated with colorful image of the Dragon, made in Chinese traditional manner. There is the red peony flower as well, which is the symbol of love and happy marriage in Orient folk beliefs.
