Miniaturized Three-Dimensional Meteorite Strike
Obverse: The likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II appears on the obverse, encircled by the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "5 DOLLARS," "COOK ISLANDS" and "2020." This effigy, known as the fourth definitive coinage portrait, was crafted by acclaimed British sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998.
Reverse: The reverse design is centered on the meteorite fragment, with mounds of sculpted earth around its final resting place. The three-dimensional representation demonstrates the dramatic meteorite impact, as it blazes a trail through the coin's edge, rim and surface. Inscriptions include "VINALES METEORITE," with "22?37'17? N" and "83?44'57? W," the earth coordinates of the impact.
