   One more glorious masterpiece of minting craftsmanship is presented under the Cook Islands legal issue within ″Windows of Heaven″ series. This time spectacular silver coin with insertion of a real stained glass is dedicated to the astonishing exemplar of French Gothic style architecture – the medieval Cathedral of Our Lady located in 80 km southwest from Paris in Chartres town.

   The stylized obverse of the silver coin represents an effigy of the Queen Elizabeth II as well as the legend indicating the Queen’s name. There is an amazing miniature of full-colour stain glass window inserted next to the portrait. The obverse also contains the inscriptions indicating the face value of the coin and the name of the issuing country.

   The reverse is decorated with the relief image of the front of the majestic Gothic Cathedral of Our Lady of Chartres along with a floor plan of the Cathedral. But the real special thrill of the coin’s reverse lies in the stained glass insert enclosed by the portion of the architectural surrounding. Full colour glass insert is a genuine reproduction of the Belle Verriere stain glass window located on the southern side at the entrance to the choir of the Cathedral of Our Lady of Chartres. The grand Cathedral is included into the list of UNESCO World Heritage. The collection of medieval stained glass windows of Chartres is absolutely unique: consisting of more than 150 windows, the oldest of which were created in the XII century. The reverse of the gorgeous Cook Islands coin as well indicates the year of the coin’s issue, name of the series and the name of the Cathedral’s native town.
