I have just received the $10 Cook Island 50 gram release and it is a stunner.
It is one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in history.
After setting sail for New York City on 10 April 1912 with 2,223 people on board, the Titanic hit an iceberg four days into the crossing, at 11:40 pm on 14 April 1912, and sank at 2:20 am on the morning of 15 April.
The Perth Mint, under the authority of the Cook Islands, has issued a huge 50mm stunning coin featuring a stained glass window.
Also a 1 oz Silver proof coin with coal from the Titanic will be released on the 4th March by the Perth Mint but you will have to be quick to secure one. The coal is the only artefact allowed to be salvaged.
Both are sure to be a huge hit with coin collectors and are likely to sell out quickly.
The glass window is based on the famous glass window dome over the Grand Staircase on the Titanic. The 100th anniversary has inspired a wave of memorabilia and in my opinion this is one of the best.
The coin is available at Silver Spirit Coins.
What do you think of this coin, leave a comment.
