It takes an astonishing feat of technology to accomplish what the Mayer Mint has done with the Famous Skyline Dollars collection: the world's first legal-tender genuine silver notes! Minted from five grams of .999 pure silver and measuring .045 millimeters in thickness--less than half the thickness of standard copy paper--the Cook Islands Famous Skylines series takes banknote collecting to a whole new level. This 150x70 millimeter note was graded Gem Proof 70 Uncirculated, the highest grading level available from Paper Money Guaranty (PMG), and also received its coveted Early Releases designation.
The Beauty of London in Vivid Color
The Cook Islands Famous Skylines Silver Banknote Collection showcases eight premier global cities: Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, London, New York City, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo and Toronto. Each silver note is minted like a coin, instead of printed like a traditional banknote, and struck to proof-like brilliance with a guilloche design on both the observe and reverse of the note. The obverse of each banknote displays a selection of each city's most beloved and recognized landmarks in full, vivid color.
The skyline of London on the obverse of this gorgeous silver banknote features the legendary Big Ben against a backdrop of the famed River Thames and iconic Tower Bridge. The obverse also includes the weight, silver purity and year of issue. The reverse of the banknote displays the standards of Cook Islands legal tender, including the left-facing profile of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the Cook Islands' Head of State since 1965 through its association with New Zealand, and the one-dollar denomination.
