The Cartoon Network is, primarily, aimed at children with kid-friendly programming throughout most of the day. However, at night, the Adult Swim block of programming takes over and offers comedic animated series for an older audience. One of the anchors of this time block has been Rick and Morty, an animated series following the hijinks of a grandfather and grandson, which debuted in December 2013. One of the most famous episodes included Rick Sanchez transforming himself into a pickle. A new Cook Islands issue of foreign silver coins offers a colorized, shaped silver coin honoring that episode.
Pickle Rick Colorized Coin
One of the latest colorized, shaped silver coins available to collectors, the new 2022 Colorized Cook Islands Rick and Morty Pickle Rick Shaped 1 oz Silver Coin is available with beautiful visuals. The obverse side of the coin features an iconic portrait of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II of England. This design was created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley for the Royal Mint and shows Her Majesty wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. These coins are some of the last that will feature an effigy of Her Majesty after Elizabeth II’s recent passing. Inscriptions on this field of the coin read ELIZABETH II, ONE DOLLAR, COOK ISLANDS, 2022, RICK AND MORTY, ADULT SWIM, and CARTOON NETWORK.
In the reverse design of the new 2022 Colorized Pickle Rick Shaped 1 oz Silver Coin, the mint offers a design that brings color to the coin and lends it the distinctive shape you see. Here, you get a view of Rick Sanchez as Pickle Rick. This side of the coin has a pickle-green color with yellow eyes and a grimacing smile for Pickle Rick.
Issue Details and Packaging
As mentioned above, these unique coins have the shape of Pickle Rick from Rick and Morty, as well as green colorization on the reverse. Each coin is individually packaged in a themed box and comes with 1 Troy oz of .999 pure silver.
Background on Rick and Morty
Rick and Morty follow the shenanigans of Rick Sanchez, a mad scientist, and his grandson Morty Smith, a good-hearted, but fretful individual. The titular characters in the animated series often follow a common flow for each episode, with their adventures taking them through the rigors of domestic life and the misadventures of their interdimensional travels. The series debuted in 2013 and continues to this day, but its six seasons have not come consecutively. For example, the fifth season recently debuted in June 2021, and the sixth season in September 2022. The program was recently renewed in a long-term deal in 2018 that consisted of 70 episodes covering an unknown number of seasons.
