Spectacular Image Of The Milky Way!

This fascinating coin features a beautiful image of the Milky Way. As a special feature, this coin has a chromatic colour application. The print is directly on the silver surface without white printed basement. This gives the colour a metallic effect. In addition, some of the stars are omitted and so the proof-like silver surface shines through. Combining data from three great NASA Observatories, we see from the space observatory Chandra the blue and violet X-rays, from Hubble the space telescope is yellow and from Spitzer another space telescope are the red data’s. It is a unique collaboration of these three observations using infrared light and x-ray light to see through the dust revealing the intense activity near the galactic core. Probably the most spectacular image of Milky Way and was never seen like this on a coin before.
