Description

Dotted with stars, the engraved “orbital” pattern swirls around the colourful view of space on your coin’s reverse. All eight planets, as viewed by telescopes in space, are artfully grouped together in order to highlight the differences in size and appearance. As for the Sun and the stars, they are celestial sources of light in space and on this coin: shine a black light flashlight on the reverse and watch as these enhanced elements begin to glow!

Designed by artist Neil Hamelin, your coin’s reverse features an awe-inspiring portrait of the solar system. It features a partial view of the Sun opposite the eight planets, which are artfully arranged in order of distance from the sun (nearest to farthest): Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Black light technology adds a cool white light to the stars and intensifies the Sun’s gaseous glow. Dotted with stars from the disk of our Milky Way galaxy, the engraved “orbital” pattern swirls around the colour element on the reverse; it also appears on the obverse, which features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
