Solar System

The Czech Mint dedicated the other silver coin from the Solar System cycle to the planet Saturn.

Saturn is a gas giant named after the Roman god of time. Gas giants are not formed by rocks and do not have a solid surface unlike terrestrial planets such as Earth and Mars. Saturn consists primarily of hydrogen and helium and has the lowest density of any planet in the solar system - even lower than the density of water, so it could float on the surface. The winds blow ten times faster than hurricanes on Earth here. Saturn's iconic system of rings that are hundreds of thousands of kilometers wide but sometimes only a few meters thick, is made of ice. Titan, which is the only moon in the solar system to have a high dense atmosphere, is Saturn's most interesting moon.

The reverse side of the coin was dedicated to the depictinon of Saturn in vivid colors, which was achieved using
pad printing technology by medal makers Asamat Baltaev, DiS., and Jiří Hanuš, DiS. The embossed relief then shows the Sun surrounded by the orbits of other planets in the solar system. The composition is closed by the inscription SATURN. Photographs or computer graphics were not used as a template for coloring - the coin makers created original watercolor paintings. The coin surface of the mintages is characterized by a special treatment - a combination of proofing, sandblasting and laser treatment of the stamps has achieved a new effect, which we have called "moon dust". The obverse side of the coin is dedicated to the depiction of the entire solar system and presents astronomical symbols of individual planets. In the center of the system you will find a portrait of Elizabeth II., which belongs together with the year of issue 2021 and the nominal value of 1 DOLLAR (NZD) to the necessary attributes of the issuer of the coin. This is the Pacific island of Niue, which provides the Czech Mint with a foreign license to mint its own commemorative coins.

You can save the coin dedicated to Saturn in a
collector's album that is full of interesting facts related to the universe and its conquerors.
