Story

Nine planets under the Sun

The nine planets of the Solar System comprise four rocky versions, including Earth, which lie closest to the Sun. Further away, gas and ice merged into four ‘gas giants’ – huge bodies composed primarily of hydrogen and helium. Even more distant, the Solar System’s only ‘dwarf’ planet, orbits the Sun at an average distance of 5.8 billion kilometres.

Coloured and antiqued design

The coin features a stylised impression of the Solar System. Portrayed in colour, the nine planets are aligned clockwise from the smallest to the largest in size: Pluto, Mercury, Mars, Venus, Earth, Neptune, Uranus, Saturn, and Jupiter. Other coloured elements include a comet and a depiction of the Sun as it might be seen from the rocky terrain of an orbiting asteroid. Both the asteroid and cosmic clouds in the background are finished with an antiqued surface treatment.
