Human beings have spent the last six decades exploring the outer reaches of space. The Space Race of the 1950s and 1960s expanded in the 60s when the United States achieved a decade-long goal of putting a man on the moon, and safely returning him to Earth. Now, mankind has set its sights on reaching the surface of Mars with a colonizing force. Right now, the 2017 1 oz Silver Mission to Mars Coin is available from JM Bullion.

Mars is the fourth planet from the sun and the second smallest in the Solar system behind only Mercury. The planet was named for the Roman god of war and is referred to colloquially as the Red Planet.
Mankind has long been obsessed with the endless possibilities that lie beyond our own planet. The obsession began with the space race that saw the Soviet Union and United States compete for satellite superiority in the solar system, and continued with the US putting a man on the moon and bringing him back home.
Today, you can own your very own piece of the solar system with an actual meteorite housed within a small capsule on these 2017 1 oz Niue Silver Mission to Mars Coins. Each coin features a piece of meteorite that crashed onto planet Earth thousands of years ago after traveling through the solar system for who knows how long.
On the reverse of the 2017 1 oz Niue Silver Mission to Mars Coin youll find the image of a space satellite cruising past the red planet as the dark red hues and colorizations of the planet Mars dominate the foreground.
The obverse of the 2017 1 oz Niue Silver Mission to Mars Coin is the classic right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley, this is the fourth-generation depiction of Her Majesty and is featured on the obverse of all Niue coinage.
All 2017 1 oz Niue Silver Mission to Mars Coins ship to you inside of a black CoinJewels display box and come with an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
