This inventive coin from groundbreaking manufacturers CIT, issued on behalf of the Cook Islands, explores the historical importance of vaults, and the precious treasures they often hold.

Vaults are an integral part of the building in which they are located, with armoured walls and a door secured with complex locks, they hold the items we find most precious. Historically, vaults were built in the basements of banks where the ceilings were vaulted, hence the name.

Nowadays they are also common in other buildings where valuables are kept, such as post offices, grand hotels, rare book libraries and certain government ministries.
