Why add this 2017 View of Canada from Space Silver 1 oz. GEM Proof to your collection?
This innovative convex colorized proof commemorates the 25th Anniversary of Dr. Roberta Bondar's shuttle mission to space. Dr. Bondar was Canada's first woman astronaut, and the second Canadian, to venture into space. The coin is dome-shaped to represent the curvature of the earth as seen from space, and the image of Canada colorized with vibrant realistic earth tones. The image is further enhanced with photo-luminescent elements to create a glow-in-the-dark viewing experience. This stunning 36.07mm diameter colorized proof is struck from 1 Troy oz. of .9999 fine silver, with an established mintage limit of 8,500.
Realistic view of Canada from Earth's orbit
The convex reverse, designed by Canadian artist Alexandra Lefort, features the image of Canada as seen from space. Two shuttles from the mission insignia patch are engraved on the border, along with the inscriptions "2017 CANADA 25 YEARS" and "ROBERTA BONDAR."
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, as sculpted by Susanna Blunt graces the concave obverse, bordered by "ELIZABETH II," "D. G. REGINA," and "25 DOLLARS."
