On the obverse is a very clever way to place an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II on a coin. It seems she is the subject of a painter’s masterpiece. He is working on a painting and the painting is the effigy of the queen. At the top of the painting is ‘ELIZABETH II’. Below the queen is ‘Cook Islands’ and ‘10 Dollars’. The painting is on an easel and the painter is putting the finishing strokes on the painting. This side of the coin is full silver.
The reverse of the coin features Van Gogh himself. Here is the artist as he painted himself and he is sitting in front of one of his works of art. This side of the coin is in full color and captures the art style of Van Gogh as he painted. You would almost swear this was painted with oil paints and you can see the heavy strokes which are characteristic of Van Gogh’s art style. The ultra high relief technology coupled with the full color really makes this look vibrant and real.
