The Trans-Siberian Railway is actually a network of rails that connects the capital city of Moscow with the Russian Far East. The total length of 5,772 miles makes it the longest railway line in the world, connecting Moscow with the vital eastern port city of Vladivostok. Completed in 1916, it now has branches that connect into Mongolia, China, and North Korea.
On the reverse of the 2016 5 oz Proof Cook Islands Mother of Pearl 100th Anniversary of the Trans-Siberian Railway Silver Coin is the image of a steam locomotive as it barrels down the tracks along a cliff line in the mountainous terrain of Siberia. The coin has an olive-green Mother of Pearl finish on this side.
