Why buy this High Relief 2020 $1 Cook Islands 1 oz Silver Lost States of America Proof State of McDonald?

The State of McDonald started up - and wrapped up - in 1961. The Missouri county attempted to secede when an economically important Ozark town, Noel, was left off of a Family Vacationland map from the Missouri State Highway Commission. Residents elected their own government, formed a militia, and issued visas for visitors not from the county. Now, the state that wasn't is honored by the Cook Islands as part of the Lost States of America Series.

Stunning Natural Scenery Design by Joel Iskowitz

Both faces of this coin were designed by internationally renowned artist Joel Iskowitz, a former member of the United States Mint's Artistic Infusion (AIP) program who was responsible for several iconic designs in the State Quarter Dollar Series as well as the America the Beautiful series.

Obverse: Most of the obverse is taken up by a scene of the stunning natural beauty of what was the State of McDonald. An animal takes a sip of water amid trees. The name of the series, "LOST STATES OF AMERICA," is inscribed along the rim. At the bottom of this face is Ian Rank-Broadley's right-side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II along with inscriptions. The inscriptions read, "ELIZABETH II," "1 DOLLAR," "COOK ISLANDS," and "2020."

Reverse; On the reverse is a portrait of Chief Henry Suagee wearing a feathered headdress. Suagee invited the county to return the land to Native Americans. Inscriptions on this face include the figure's name, "CHIEF HENRY SUAGEE," the name of the state, "STATE OF MCDONALD," and the year that it attempted statehood, "1961."
