Why purchase this pristine 2020 Fighter Pilot 1 oz. platinum ultra high relief proof coin?

The Cook Islands ultra high relief proof series celebrating Real Heroes was launched in 2020 with this coin honoring the courage of the Fighter Pilot.

  • The 2020 Fighter Pilot coin is crafted from 1 Troy oz. of .9995 fine platinum.
  • The perfectly graded 33 mm diameter coin features a dazzling ultra high relief proof finish.
  • The entirety of the mere 199 piece mintage is sold out at the Mint.

Astoundingly Sculptural Fighter Pilot Design

Obverse: The obverse features the distinctive silhouettes of two fighter pilots walking away from a fighter jet in the background, while two jets take to the skies above. The inscription "ONLY THE BRAVE ARE FREE" is centered on the coin, beneath the pilots' feet. A circular inset below is graced with the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II created by renowned British sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998. Additional inscriptions include "ELIZABETH II," "250 DOLLARS," "COOK ISLANDS" and "2020."

Reverse: An incredibly detailed close-up view of a helmeted fighter pilot dominates the reverse, its sleek mirrored visor aimed forward. In the left background field of hexagonal shapes, a geometrically styled angel is accompanied by the series name "REAL HERO." The powerful message "ONLY THE BRAVE ARE FREE" is located on the coin's rim.
