Powerful clock designs
Both faces of this coin bear designs that mark the passage of time, something that is as important as it is all too often overlooked. On the obverse are the wheels that are on the inside of a clock. One of those wheels features a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley. Inscriptions near the image include "ELIZABETH II," "5 DOLLARS," and "COOK ISLANDS." Faces of several clocks adorn the obverse, with one including the inscription "TEMPORA MUTANTUR, NOS ET MUTAMUR IN ILLIS" ("Times change, and we change with them").
