Description of obverse and reverse The obverse design bears the Raphael Maklouf effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II surrounded by the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II, COOK ISLANDS 2011" and the monetary denomination. The reverse design of the 2011 Year of the Rabbit coin features two mature rabbits in colour laying on the ground and nuzzling each other, against a background of flower, wind and leaf motifs. The design also incorporates the Chinese character for ‘rabbit’, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, and the weight and purity of the metal. Issued as Cook Islands legal tender.
A brief annotation The Perth Mint’s annual Lunar Calendar rectangular gold coin celebrates each one of the twelve animals associated with the ancient Chinese Lunar Calendar. In 2011, the Year of the Rabbit, the coin honoured the docile and inquisitive rabbit. In Chinese culture, it is believed that people born under the rabbit’s rule are considered intelligent, articulate, compassionate and loyal.
