Why purchase this 2017 Murrine Millefiori Glass Art Silver Proof?

The 2017 Silver Proof Murrine Millefiori Glass Art coin issued by the Cook Islands is the third and final release of the exceptional glass art collection celebrating the ancient Roman art of Millefiori, a technique revived in the nineteenth century. The handcrafted glass making method assures that each coin in the 999 mintage will be absolutely unique. The proof is struck by the Mayer Mint in Germany from 20g (0.643 Troy oz.) of .999 fine silver, with a diameter of 65mm.

Breathtaking Glass Art Design

Featured on the reverse is a gorgeous glass design containing a random pattern of delightful flowers embedded in a vibrant green background. The glass surrounds a circular area of the coin engraved "MURRINE," "MILLEFIORI," "GLASS ART" and "2017," with a matching glass art heart shape at the center.

The effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II appears on the obverse, as created by sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley, encircled by an array of fanciful engraved flowers. Inscribed "ELIZABETH II," "COOK ISLANDS" and "5 DOLLARS."
