Why make this 2021 1 oz. silver spherical colorized antiqued coin honoring the planet Mars the next addition to your collection?
This sphere-shaped coin issued by Barbados is a beautifully sculpted representation of the planet Mars. Known as the "Red Planet" for its signature rust red color, Mars is the fourth planet from the sun and the second smallest planet in the solar system. The early 2021 release of this Mars tribute coin coincides with the anticipated February 18th arrival of NASA's Perseverance rover, which began its journey to Mars on July 30, 2020.
Miniature Sculpture of Mars
Obverse: The Coat of Arms of Barbados appears on the obverse, surrounded by the inscriptions "BARBADOS," "1 OZ," "5 DOLLARS," "AG 999" and "2021." The emblem is hand applied to the coin's surface using an innovative water transfer print technique.
Reverse: The reverse is styled to emulate the dusty red surface of Mars, with darkened areas representing the shadows created by the planet's multiple canyons, volcanoes, dry lake beds and rough rocky regions.
Spectacular Brilliant Uncirculated Spherical Coin
This 2021 Barbados Mars Spherical 1 oz. Silver brilliant uncirculated $5 coin is superbly minted, featuring gorgeously finished colorized and antiqued surfaces, with astronomical eye appeal.

There are, however, a few very unique coins struck by various Mints around the world that break these conformities. From domed coins to volcano shaped coins, you will be surprised the examples ModernCoinMart has to offer!
