Description of obverse and reverse
One side features a woman’s head with pointed hat. Her open hair falls around her face, her right hand rests on her left shoulder. In front of her a black raven, its eye exactly above the woman’s left eye. The background is filled with geometric patterns. On the right “RAVEN WITCH / EYE OF MAGIC”, below the year “2022”.

The other side features the portrait of Elizabeth II, below IRB (= Ian Rank-Broadley), around it the legend “ELIZABETH II 10 DOLLARS COOK ISLANDS 2022”.

A brief annotation
Simple people always dreaded witches’ knowledge of herbal potions and remedies, their connection with nature and animals, and their free-spirited beliefs. Unquestionably, these female magicians owe their bad reputation to the fear of the unknown. Equally to the sorceress, her companion the raven radiates an eerie aura. The raven’s pitch-black plumage, its croaking call associate it with death and evil omens. The bird endowed with speech symbolises prophecy and knowledge. Witch and raven share the eye of magic, peering through space and time and connecting the material world with the world of spirits.
