This Cook Islands Aurum® is the first legal tender issued by a sovereign nation using Aurum® precious metal technology.

The Five Dollar Gold Note is a 1/100 ounce gold "note" issued by the Bank of the Cook Islands, the nation's central bank. Containing gold, the Aurum® is technically a coin under Cook Islands statutes.

The Five Dollar Gold Note memorializes the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. On the reverse of the bill, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stand in front of Windsor Castle. A legend commemorates the specific time and place of the wedding ceremony, "St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, Saturday, 19th May, 2018 at 12 Noon". 

The face of the note features H. M. Queen Elizabeth II, in the effigy by Ian Rank-Broadley.  Beneath the effigy are the artist's initials. This effigy is used by all UK and Commonwealth coinage issued by the Royal Mint from 1998 to 2015, and continues to be used by the Cook Islands. Above the effigy are the words "Elizabeth II" and "Dei Gratia Regina", which is a Latin title meaning, "By the Grace of God, Queen".

The face of the note also bears the $5 mark, the words "Five Dollars Legal Tender, Aurum®, a serial number, and "1/100 ounce", the weight of gold contained in the bill. High security guilloche effects and a crystallized scale effect protect against counterfeiting. 

Valaurum expects examples of this issue, limited to 5000 pieces, to become a valuable collector's note.

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT DUE TO THE HIGH DEMAND OF THIS AURUM®, THERE MAY BE A SLIGHT DELAY IN SHIPPING YOUR ORDER.
