    Thinking I might need to review the reserve for Lot 5 :oops:
    Cook Island uses New Zealand Dollars as it's currency (see here) and these coins are Legal Tender $50 coins :D
    $1200NZD = $1094AUD (see here) :cool:
    *Note - Due to QEII Sovereign Head on the coin denoting "Legal Tender"...waaaay more pretty than our "plastic" Fiddies o_O*

    Don't think you need to worry too much, found this on Wikipedia....
    (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cook_Islands_dollar)

    "A large number of commemorative non circulating collectors coins are also issued by the Cook Islands featuring an almost endless array of themes as the government has a contract in which a coin design can be commissioned and minted with the name "Cook Islands" and dollar units for a fee, making coinage a resource for extra revenue. Due to exchange schemes involving large stocks of non-circulating commemorative coins, mintages are regulated and not recognized or accepted as legal tender within the Cook Islands."

    Thanks for the link/comments to kiona and Beyond (interesting thought experiment though, as to when and/or where does having Queen Libby's mug on a coin denote "Legal Tender" or not :confused: )
    Nice to see the Franklin Mint sharing some good company :p
    And from the "Franklin Mint" link above...*Selective underlining by me ;) *
