2024 2 oz Armillary Sphere Antique Silver Coin

The Armillary Sphere Antique Silver Coin is the second issue of the Historical Instruments Series from CIT. The series presents two-ounce silver coins manufactured in an antique finish and limited strikes.

As a motif, it showcases remarkable devices used over humanity's development that contributed to advances in several scientific areas.

The Armillary Sphere was allegedly invented in ancient China during the 4th century BC and in ancient Greece in the 3rd century BC. It consists of a framework of rings or hoops that symbolize lines of celestial longitude and latitude and other important celestial circles. The sphere is often mounted on an axis that allows it to rotate, representing the Earth's axis.

Coin Highlights

  • Bears a 10-dollar denomination and legal tender status, backed by the Cook Islands;
  • Struck with the CIT Smartminting® Technique and Antique Finish;
  • second strike of the Historical Instrument Series;
  • Limited edition of 1,500 units;
  • The obverse features King Charles III’s effigy and other historical instruments;
  • The reverse displays the Armillary Sphere.

The Design

The obverse displays the Coat of Arms of the Cook Islands in focus. The effigy of King Charles III debuts in the series with its official portrait, surrounded by “10 DOLLARS,” “CHARLES III,” and “COOK ISLANDS.”

The image also includes other historical instruments like an hourglass, a telescope, the wind rose, a sextant, a compass, and an astrolabe.

The series name “HISTORICAL INSTRUMENTS” is engraved on the outer rim.

The reverse design reproduces half of an armillary sphere with its rings and degree rulers imprinted in ultra-high relief due to CIT’s Smartminting® Technology. 

Discreet engravings referring to the instrument’s name, cardinal points, and the coin’s issuance are noticed.

The antique finish used on the surfaces gives darker tones to the silver and the idea of an ancient coin, following the collection’s purpose of old objects.
