There's so much more going on in silver bullion coinage these days, that it's hard to keep track. This silver artwork is not only colored in beautiful detail, but caries a chip of sandstone from Cambodia, the site of the legendary holy city of Angkor Wat. Really a city-sized temple, it is the largest standing religious monument in the world. It is a national symbol of Cambodia, appearing on its flag, and has been a revered center of meditation in both Hindu and Buddhist religions.
This legal tender specimen bears the face value of $5 Cook Islands currency, and features Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. The Cook Islands in the Pacific Ocean are in free association with New Zealand even though they are self-governing, hence the sovereign. Of course, having a chip of sandstone embedded means every specimen is slightly unique, an amazing innovation in minting technology.
