This is the first coin of a three-coin Northern Sky series featuring the celebrated domed shape coin. In Greek mythology, Cassiopeia was the beautiful but boastful queen of Ethiopia. While her beauty could never be questioned, her vanity became her tragic legacy. The coin is made of 1 oz silver 999 in proof quality, with the worldwide mintage limited to 5 000 pieces.

The traditional obverse of the Australian coin is decorated with an effigy of Her Majesty Elizabeth II. The following inscriptions surround the portrait: the Queen’s name, the name of the issuing country, and the year of issue.

The reverse is a likeness of the night sky, with Cassiopeia constellation twinkling in it. Cassiopeia can still be seen in the northern skies today, with her throne circling the celestial pole and her arm desperately hanging on. As per Poseidon’s wishes, the constellation is sometimes seen upside down, and appears as either an M or W depending on when it is being viewed. After being catalogued in the second century by the Greek astronomer Ptolemy, it is still classed as one of today’s 88 modern constellations. The coin comes housed in a special presentation box with a Certificate of Authenticity inside.
