Always a popular topic for collector, Space and the celestial bodies inspire endless ideas and imagination. And so it is with The Austrian Mint with this 20 euro silver coin depicting the Milky Way.
Taking on recent theories of the shape of our home galaxy, which suggest that it is not a flat disc but, rather, something of a 3D warped 'S' shape, this silver coin is shaped... like a warped S! The mind boggles as to how the Austrian national mint was able to strike with such precision on a coin of this shape and, indeed, how on Earth they managed to apply such perfect colour also remains a mystery! But they have, and the result is this magnificent, full colour, limited edition Silver collector coin.
