Why purchase this Domed Northern Sky Silver Colorized Ursa Major Proof
The Northern Sky Series continues with this Colorized Silver 1 oz. Ursa Major, the second issue in the collection. This coin, which was struck at the Royal Australian Mint from .999 fine silver, is part of a mintage of 5,000. It has a concave shape that adds depth to the stunning design, making this perfect not only for those who are fascinated by the night sky but also those who like coins with unique design elements.
Stunning Ursa Major Design by B. King
Ian Rank-Broadley's effigy of Queen Elizabeth II is featured on the obverse. The Queen is shown wearing a tiara, and the artist's initials, "IRB," are inscribed just below the truncation. Other inscriptions include "AUSTRALIA 2016" and "ELIZABETH II."
B. King's reverse design makes it easy for the holder to identify the stars that are part of the Ursa Major constellation, as they are larger than the others. The background of orange, pink, and purple offers a unique look at the night sky.
GEM Proof in Original Mint Packaging
Your coin will arrive in its Original Mint Packaging, which includes both a display box and a certificate of authenticity. It is guarantied to be in GEM Proof condition, which is equivalent to Mint State 65 or better. That means that it has strong eye appeal, but it may have some visible imperfections, such as hairlines or contact marks.
