Through a stunning technological innovation, the Mint has created coins with a raised surface, resulting in the first domed coins depicting a lunar relief on a convex reverse.

Also awarded will be one 50 Eur, 5 ounce silver International Year of Astronomy coin valued at approximately $480 USD, as well as one 10 Euro, 22.2g silver International Year of Astronomy coin, valued at $62 USD.
