1994 Cook Islands Coin Set

Posted on

The Cook Islands is a small nation and like many small nations doesn't have massive demand for new coins each year - in the 22 years of the Cook Islands having its own coinage, circulating coins were only struck in eight different years. Uncirculated sets and proof sets were struck in a number of years when no circulating coins were issued as well, including the final year of Cook Islands coinage - 1994.

Although the reported mintages of the 1994 Cook Islands coin sets - 20,000 uncirculated sets and 200 proofs sets - are comparatively high - the sets are very rare. The sets were all struck by the Royal Australian Mint in Canberra but it is unknown where the sets were marketed, or if all of the sets ended up being issued.
