2016 Benin 3 Ounce Space Phenomena Supernova Colored Silver Coin Set

$260.00 CAD

This gorgeous 3 Ounce .999 pure silver coin is stylized after perhaps the most violent of celestial events known, the Supernova.  It features a colored application in addition to discreet gold plating on the reverse design.

A supernova is an astronomical event that occurs during the last evolutionary stages of a massive star's life, whose dramatic and catastrophic destruction is marked by one final titanic explosion. For a short time, this causes the sudden appearance of a 'new' bright star, before slowly fading from sight over several weeks or month.

This tribute coin is sure to please coin collectors and stargazers alike. With a very limited mintage of only 999 sets, these are an assured mint sellout.
