On the obverse, Queen Elizabeth II is portrayed in a right-profile relief, as designed by Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998 for the Royal Mint. This renowned design has graced numerous coin programs across the Commonwealth.
Flip the coin to behold the reverse side, featuring the enchanting left-profile bust of Arethusa, accompanied by dolphins gracefully positioned in front and behind her head. The CI initials of the Cook Islands rest beneath her chin, further enhancing the coin’s allure.
Arethusa’s story is often associated with Artemis, the goddess of the hunt and the protector of maidens. It was Artemis who answered Arethusa’s plea for help and transformed her into a spring. This association highlights the protective and transformative powers of the goddess.
