The Milky Way

The second silver coin from the Milky Way collector's series is dedicated to the cosmic grouping that gave its name to the entire cycle of the Czech Mint - the Milky Way galaxy.

The Milky Way is the galaxy in which our Sun and solar system are located
. From Earth, it can be seen as a silvery band of merging stars across the sky, which is how it got its name. In reality, however, it takes the form of a central bar to which two spiral arms are connected. The diameter of our home galaxy is up to 200,000 light-years across. It is estimated to contain 400 billion stars and at least 100 billion planets, but the vast majority of its mass is made up of mysterious and invisible dark matter.

The reverse side of the coin was dedicated by medal maker
Asamat Baltaev, DiS., to depiction of the Milky Way in vivid colors achieved by colorization technology. No photographs or computer graphics were used as the subject - the author of the coin created an original watercolour painting. The embossed relief shows stylized space objects - stars, planets and satellites. The composition is closed by the English inscription MILKY WAY. The obverse side of the coin humorously presents crop circles and a flying saucer, which illuminates the portrait of Elizabeth II. Together with the Queen's name, the year of issue 2022 and the nominal value of 1 DOLLAR (NZD), this is a necessary attribute of the issuer of the coin - the Pacific island of Niue, which provides the Czech Mint with a foreign licence to mint its own commemorative coins.

The coin dedicated to the Milky Way can be stored in a
collector's album full of interesting facts about our home galaxy and the conquerors of the space.
