Comments

First in The Earth and Beyond Silver Domed coin series features our beloved home planet, the Earth. The beauty of our planet is displayed in a convex shape, giving a realistic look to the coin. Our planet Earth was thought to have formed around 4.54 billion years ago, with the first photograph of the full view of Earth taken on December 7, 1972. That famous photograph, called the "Blue Marble" was taken as the Apollo 17 crew left Earth's orbit for the moon, and shows a captivating view of the Earth.
