Mont Saint-Michel ultra high relief concave 5 oz proof silver coin Cook Islands 2023. The magnificent Mont Saint-Michel, a remote island off the Normandy coast that has enchanted people all over the world with its singular beauty, is honored on this exceptional 5 ounce silver coin. Mont Saint-Michel is a wonder of architecture and a symbol of spiritual significance, which is why it has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979 and a popular destination for pilgrims.The stunning silhouette of Mont Saint-Michel is featured on this coin, which is expertly fashioned from 5 troy ounces of pure 999 silver. The majestic spires and ornate Gothic architecture of the abbey are captured in all their glory on the coin's surface. The meticulous work and attention to detail do justice to the historic significance of this structure.The intriguing appearance of Mont Saint-Michel is matched by its equally intriguing history. The Benedictine abbey we see today is the product of construction that started in 966 and continues over the ages. But it hasn't been a smooth ride thus far. In 1203, following King Philip II's failed effort at conquest, a terrible fire partially destroyed the abbey. As a gesture of reparation, the King of France underwrote the construction of the magnificent abbey known as La Merveille, or "the Wonder," which stands as a lasting tribute to the character of Mont Saint-Michel to this day.The island of Mont Saint-Michel, surrounded by water, is shown from above on the concave obverse. The years 1023 through 2023 are inscribed on a stylised glass pane in the background, which depicts Mont Saint-Michel. On the back is a silhouetted couple in front of a sketch of Mont Saint-Michel. Above Queen Elizabeth's image and to the left, a map of France with the precise location shown. A description of Mont-Saint-Michel is printed on the border.Authenticity documentation and specialized packaging for each coin are included.
