The CIT with their smartminting® technology have shown that they can do incredibly detailed images that are breathtaking. This ultra high-relief allows a level of detail that you don’t see with many coins. This technology really lets their artists run wild with their designs and we see a wide gamut of thought-provoking conversation pieces from them. This Untrapped design is definitely one of those conversation pieces.
On the obverse is Ian Rank-Broadley’s classic depiction of Elizabeth II. Here she is facing to the right with a look of determination on her face. She is wearing a crown and the Royal Jewelry. Although we have seen this design on many, many coins, the ultra high relief makes the image look fresh for now we see way more detail like we are seeing it in 4K after seeing it in 720p HD all this time. To the left of her is ‘ELIZABETH II’. To the right of her is ‘COOKS ISLANDS’. Below her image is ‘5 DOLLARS’.
The reverse side of the coin is an image of what looks like a woman with her face up against some mesh material. Half of her face is still behind the mesh while the other half can be seen a little because she is clawing through the mesh with her hand. This conjures up images of someone sewn up in a bag and they are escaping or a god coming through into this world by tearing through the veil into our world. Interestingly, though, the word ‘TRAPPED’ is written on the edge at the top. The title of the coin is ‘UNTRAPPED’ so this in itself is a conversation starter. At the bottom edge is ‘2022’.
