The third planet from our Sun, the largest of the four rocky and metallic planets of the inner solar system, and the fifth-largest planet in the system as a whole is Earth. Not only is the cradle of humanity the only planet we know of to host life, but it’s the only known planet in our system that has liquid water on its surface. The Mint of Poland built Earth’s entry in the Solar System series around vivid artwork that captures the beauty and complexity of our native planet.
The 2021 Proof Cameroon Silver Earth Coin features detailed medallic artwork, accents of ruthenium, decorative touches of selective gilding, and a realistic image of the planet that forms the heart of its design. With brilliant proof-quality silver making its details stand out dramatically, this exclusive limited mintage is sure to be a prized addition to any collection. JM Bullion ships these coins fully insured in a distinctive astronomy-themed presentation case, each with a Certificate of Authenticity.
The coin’s obverse has a digitally-printed portrait of Earth at its center, set under a magnifying lens that accentuates images of clouds swirling over the world’s continents and its brilliant blue seas. An inscription of a star map surrounds it, with constellations traced out and over twenty visible stars and galaxies named, while gilded spheres point out a dozen decorative points in the heavens and a gilded rim frames the whole.
The reverse features a coat of arms of Cameroon. It’s accompanied by the inscriptions “Republique du Cameroun,” “2021” and “500 Francs CFA,” along with both English and French versions of the national motto “Peace,” “Work,” “Fatherland.”
