This fascinating coin features a beautiful image of the Milky Way. As a special feature, this coin has a chromatic color application.
The print is directly on the silver surface without white printed basement. This gives the color a metallic effect.
In addition, some of the stars are omitted and so the proof-like silver surface shines through.
Combining data from three great NASA Observatories, we see from the space observatory Chandra the blue and violet X-rays, from Hubble the space telescope is yellow and from Spitzer another space telescope are the red data’s.
It is a unique collaboration of these three observations using infrared light and x-ray light to see through the dust revealing the intense activity near the galactic core.
Probably the most spectacular image of Milky Way and was never seen like this on a coin before.
To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope this Shades of Space Edition shows a beautiful picture taken by Fermi Gamma Ray.
Fermi Gamma Raywas launched on 2008 and is a space observatory being used to perform gamma-ray astronomy observations from low Earth orbit.
