This 2017 $5 Cook Islands 1/2 g Gold 100th Anniversary of Graf Zeppelin Proof was issued to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the death of this aviation travel pioneer. It was struck from .9999 fine gold at the Mayer Mint in Germany. The coin is part of a mintage of 15,000 pieces.

Stunning Graf Zeppelin design

Queen Elizabeth II is depicted wearing earrings and a tiara on the obverse of the coin. The image was created by Ian Rank-Broadley and appears on the coinage of several commonwealth countries. Rim inscriptions include "ELIZABETH II," "COOK ISLANDS," and "5 DOLLARS."

On the reverse is a portrait of the man in whose honor the coin was issued. He is dressed in a suit and has a mustache. His name and title, "GRAF FERDINAND VON ZEPPELIN," are inscribed to the left. "100TH ANNIVERSARY," the dates of his life, "1838-1917," and the date of the coin, "2017," are included on this face as well.
