2022 Cook Islands $25 Five-Ounce Silver 7 Summits Mount Vinson Ultra High Relief Colorized Coin
Though not the tallest mountain in the world, Antarctica’s Mount Vinson is one of the most treacherous for the combination of its remoteness, wind-blown snow, and bone-freezing temperatures. Rising to a height of 16,050 feet, 1,200 climbers have conquered Mount Vinson since it was first ascended in 1966. By way of contrast, Mount Everest has been climbed 11,346 times by 6,098 climbers as of July 2022. While climbing Mount Vinson is not technically difficult, any ascent of the frozen massif depends largely on the weather and the logistics of planning the trip.
This stunning coin—the seventh and final release of the Seven Summit Series—features a dramatic colorized depiction of Mount Vinson that literally towers off the surface. It is struck by the esteemed Mayer Mint in Germany, using patented Smartminting© technology developed by CIT allowing designs to be struck in incredible Ultra High Relief (UHR) with extraordinary precise detail—all without reducing the coin’s diameter! Released on behalf of the Cook Islands, a nation made up of 15 islands in the South Pacific Ocean, this legal tender $25 coin was struck in five ounces of highly pure .999 fine silver.
