Introducing the sold out final Northern Sky release, Cygnus!

A Grand Finale to the Northern Sky Series

Sold out 2016 Cygnus coins now available!

After selling out at the Mint less than 24 hours after its release, the third and final coin of the Royal Australian Mint’s Northern Sky Series is now available at ModernCoinMart (MCM)!

With a limited mintage of just 5,000 coins, these cosmically-captivating 1 oz. Proof Silver Domed Northern Sky coins depict the 16th largest constellation, Cygnus. Translated to the word, ”swan,” Cygnus is a Latinized Greek term that was appropriately given to the Ptolemy-discovered constellation after onlookers began to see a faint outline of a swan mid-flight in the stars.

2016 Australia $5 1 oz. Colorized Proof Silver Domed Northern Sky – Cygnus NGC PF70 UC Early Releases (Exclusive Australia Label)

Available in its original Mint packaging or certified as PF69 and PF70 UC with the Early Releases designation by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation, Cygnus makes a perfect gift for the special stargazer in your life.

Seen each year from June to December, Cygnus is one of the most-visible constellations of the Northern Hemisphere and is depicted on the reverse of this sold-out coin!

Truly light-years before the trends, the Northern Sky followed the Southern Sky series, which introduced the world’s first-ever curved colorized coins. Both Royal Australian Mint releases, these series influenced other Mints around the world to create their own, colorized, dome-shaped coins.

Be sure to place your order immediately to secure your portion of the few 5,000 Cygnus Proof 1 oz. silver coins ever to be minted. A concluding issue to a far-out series like this does not come around often!
