Deutschland / Germany Cook Islands 2014 50$ Jules Verne - The Nautilus 5 ozProof Silver Coin Description
The worldwide successful series of Mother of Pearl coins has been replenished with another unique miniature work of art by the Cook Islands. The new 2014 coin of pure .999 silver is dedicated to the legendary submarine from Jules Verne’s famous science fiction novel “Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea” and has got the extremely limited mintage quantity of only 750 pieces worldwide.
The effigy of Her Majesty Elizabeth II is featured on the obverse of the 5 oz silver coin. The portrait is surrounded by the inscriptions denoting the Queen’s name, the issuing country and year.
The particular appeal of the coin is its reverse inner core made out of real Mother of Pearl surrounded by pure silver of the highest proof quality. It pictures the Nautilus passing by a giant octopus. Named after Robert Fulton's real-life submarine, Nautilus was mostly decorated to standards of luxury that were unequaled in a seagoing vessel of the time. No wonder that it is described by Jules Verne as ‘a masterpiece containing masterpieces.’ The name of the coin and its face value are indicated along the rim of this awesome Mother of Pearl coin. The Nautilus coin will make an elegant addition to a collection of limited edition coins as well as a great gift for Jules Verne fans.What you're getting:
