Neutron rich Zinc isotopes, including the nucleus were produced and post‐accelerated at the Radioactive Ion Beam (RIB) facility REX‐ISOLDE (CERN). Low‐energy Coulomb excitation was induced on these isotopes after post‐acceleration, yielding B(E2) strengths to the first excited states. For the first time, an excited state in was observed and the state in was established. The measured values are compared to two sets of large scale shell model calculations. Both calculations reproduce the observed systematics for the full Zinc isotopic chain. The results for isotones indicate a good shell closure and a strong proton core polarization. The new results serve as benchmarks to establish theoretical models, predicting the nuclear properties of the doubly magic nucleus
