Gorgeous Fighter Pilot Imagery
Obverse: The obverse is divided horizontally by the inscription "ONLY THE BRAVE ARE FREE." Above, a recently landed fighter jet appears, with two jets in flight above, as the silhouetted forms of two fighter pilots walk forward carrying helmets and gear. Below, the portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is located in a circular frame, surrounded by the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "250 DOLLARS," "COOK ISLANDS" and "2020." The effigy was designed in 1998 by acclaimed British sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley.
Reverse: A stunningly detailed fighter pilot is depicted on the reverse, with a face mask and a helmet ornamented with stars and stripes camouflaging the pilot's identity. The series' logo, a stylized angel graphic with "REAL HERO" inscribed above, is contained within the complex honeycomb background pattern. The phrase "ONLY THE BRAVE ARE FREE" accompanies the image, on the coin's thin rim.
