Coin Story

Astronomy is a natural science which is the study of celestial objects (such as stars, galaxies, planets, moons, asteroids,comets and nebulae), the physics, chemistry, and evolution of such objects, and phenomena that originate outside the atmosphere of Earth, including supernovae explosions, gamma ray bursts, and cosmic microwave background radiation. A related but distinct subject, cosmology, is concerned with studying the universe as a whole.

Reverse Design

The reverse appears quite simple, resembling a planetarium like insight. It appears as such that the dome of the sky, complete with the stars all over the reverse. The Saturn is highlighted there in the top with much bigger print. The lower edge is made creative with the astronomical symbolic forms of planets, starting with closest Moon and going through all the way to Pluto. Yes Pluto is there but not in its standard symbol (♇). It's also noteworthy that Earth is missing in the queue.

Obverse Design

The obverse is depicted with the commemoration of 40th anniversary of Apollo 11, first lunar landing. The obverse is apparently covered with a finely crafted very 1st foot print of Neil Armstrong. There are also the face value of 10 Euros, denomination, mint, the Year of 2009 plus an inscription in French meaning the "40th anniversary to the first landing in Moon".


The Astronomie coin comes encapsuled, in a presentation case.
