Exquisite Yellow Brick Road Design

The coin's obverse bears a design that has dominated Commonwealth coins for two decades, Ian Rank-Broadley's right-side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II wearing a tiara. The reigning British monarch is encircled by rim inscriptions, which include her name, "ELIZABETH II," the coin's face value, "5 DOLLARS," its country, "COOK ISLANDS," and the date, "2017."

The reverse features a stunning colorized look at the Yellow Brick Road leading up to the Emerald City. The point of view is from ground level just behind Dorothy, thus including her famous ruby slippers. The famous directions that were given to Dorothy to arrive at the Emerald City, "FOLLOW THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD," are inscribed to the right along with the movie title, "THE WIZARD OF OZ."
