More info

The coin celebrates the 50th Anniversary of Sputnik, which was launched by the Soviet Union on 4 October 1957. The first man-made satellite to orbit the world, Sputnik’s success triggered the Space Race and efforts to realise the ultimate dream of landing men on the Moon.
The coin is coated with a transparent wear-resistant finish, allowing you to orbit Sputnik around the Earth without contaminating the proof quality of the coin. The coin is housed in an elliptical-shaped silver display case. The case comes in a blue box shipper with a lid depicting Sputnik and its name in English and Russian.

Design
The coin’s coloured reverse depicts the famous satellite in orbit. Thanks to the unique construction of the ‘orbital’ coin, Sputnik literally revolves around an image of the Earth. The design also includes the border inscription SPUTNIK 50TH ANNIVERSARY 1957-2007. Issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of the Cook Islands, the coin's obverse depicts the Raphael Maklouf effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination surrounding another coloured image of the Earth.
