Solar System

The planet Earth appears besides the Sun and the Moon on a silver coin beautified by the coloring in the Solar System collector's cycle. 

Earth is the
home of mankind and the only planet with a life. Its existence is ensured by a sufficient mass of the planet that maintains a high atmosphere and by a temperature range that allows the existence of water in a liquid state. Water covers more than two-thirds of the surface of the "blue planet". Earth has the highest density of all the solar system planets. It also has a strong magnetic field to protect it from devastating solar winds, and the largest circular body in comparison to its own size.

On the reverse side of the coin, which was processed by the author duo
Asamat Baltaev, DiS., and Jiří Hanuš, DiS., you will find a colored depiction of the Earth. The embossed relief then presents other planets orbiting the Sun, their orbits, together with the Latin name TERRA. Photographs or computer graphics were not used for coloring. Coin authors created original watercolor paintings. The surface is characterized by a special treatment - a combination of proofing, sandblasting and using lasers resulted in a new effect that was entitled the “moon dust”. The obverse side of the coin was dedicated to the entire solar system. It presents astronomical symbols for each planet. In the center of the system you will find necessary attributes of the coin issuer, which includes the portrait of Elizabeth II, the Queen's name, the year of the issue 2019 and the nominal value of 1 DOLLAR (NZD). The coin issuer is the Pacific Island of Niue, which provides the Czech Mint with a foreign license to mint its own commemorative coins.

Remember that the Solar System cycle can be stored in the spectacular
collector´s album which you can also find in the offer of the Czech Mint
