Coin Story

The Most Beautiful Galaxies series was designed in collaboration with the European Southern Observatory – the leading intergovernmental astronomy organization in Europe. This superb triple galaxy is composed of two massive spiral galaxies and a third irregular galaxy. Astronomers have produced a very fine single image in three colors, the complete system of three interacting galaxies "The Bird" or "Tinkerbell Galaxy". The object is about 650 million light years away, however, its wings spread over more than 100,000 light years, roughly the size of our Milky Way.

Reverse Design

The reverse features an image of God taken from the “Ancient of Days” by W. Blake, drawing a circle around a selected galaxy with a compass. At the bottom, an image of the tinkerbell galaxy is featured. The image was perfectly imprinted in high resolution technology. The background image represents a monochord – an ancient one-string musical instrument that symbolizes deep exploration of music and cosmology.

Obverse Design

The traditional obverse of the coin by Niue bears the portrait of Her Majesty Elizabeth II surrounded by the following inscriptions: the Queen’s name, the face value of the coin, its issuing year and country.
