The term Steampunk can be traced back to 1987, when the author Kevin Jeter jokingly used it to refer to a Victorian work of fiction he was writing. Since then, Steampunk has morphed into its own genre complete with popular books, movies, TV Shows, and fashion lines. In essence, the genre combines Victorian era fashion sensibilities with futuristic science fiction elements.

Steampunk draws its name from Cyberpunk and combines two unique worlds to create a truly distinctive genre. Fans of Steampunk tend to love Victorian literature and fashion. Favorite authors include the Bronte Sisters, Bram Stoker, and Mary Shelley. Pretty much all the styles of that era are popular in the movement, with a particular emphasis on top hats, petticoats, gloves, and trench coats. Now imagine a futuristic world where steam never replaced electricity, people wear Victorian clothing, and everything seems to be made of heavy metal with cogs and complex gear systems. Welcome to the world of Steampunk.
Queen Elizabeth II is featured on the obverse of 2022 1 Kilo Antique Cook Islands Steampunk Coins.

The hallmarks are shown along the edges. The outer portion of the obverse depicts a series of shifting gears, cogs, and pipes. The word Steampunk is spelled out along the rim.
