Why purchase this 2019 Woodstock Guitar Pick Shaped Silver coin?
This antiqued silver coin is issued by the Cook Islands to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the 1969 Woodstock Music Festival, the "3 Days of Peace and Music" which evolved into a history-making four day event. The coin is struck by Germany's Mayer Mint from 1/4 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver into an exciting guitar pick shape. Mintage is limited to just 1,969.
Woodstock Themed Design
A gorgeous pattern of meandering vines and flowers adorns the reverse, along with the "50 YEARS WOODSTOCK" logo and the anniversary dates "1969" and "2019" separated by a peace sign.
An incused circle on the obverse features sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley's familiar rendition of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, surrounded by the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "2 DOLLARS," "COOK ISLANDS" and "2019." The additional inscription "1/4 OZ FINE SILVER .999" curves above the circle, with "EXTRA HEAVY" below, a delightful twist on terminology that references the thickness of a traditional guitar pick.
