Description

On January 22, 1992, the NASA space shuttle Discovery launched from Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral with a crew of seven—including neurologist Dr. Roberta Bondar, M.D., Ph.D., who holds the distinction of being Canada’s first female astronaut. This convex $25 fine silver coin celebrates the 25th anniversary of Dr. Bondar’s historic mission. Mintage is limited to only 8,500. HST/GST exempt.


The Design:

The reverse design by Canadian artist Alexandra Lefort combines colour with glow-in-the-dark effects to recreate a breathtaking view of Earth from space. The partial view of the Western Hemisphere places the focus on North America, specifically Canada—while the application of colour captures the nuances that characterize the different regions, and the different blues that mark the ocean depth. Within the outer band that frames the field, the 25th anniversary of Dr. Roberta Bondar’s historic space mission is commemorated by the number “25” and a miniature depiction of the space shuttle Discovery, as it appeared on Dr. Bondar’s personal mission crest.
