The Most Beautiful Galaxies series was designed in collaboration with the European Southern Observatory (ESO) – the leading intergovernmental astronomy organization in Europe. The first coin in series is dedicated to the Spiral Galaxy NGC 1232. It is about 100 million light years away in the Eridanus constellation. The coin comes in two versions: pure silver .999 and 24-carat gold-plated brass.

The traditional obverse of the coin by Niue bears the portrait of Her Majesty Elizabeth II surrounded by the following inscriptions: the Queen’s name, the face value of the coin, its issuing year and country.

The reverse features an image of God taken from the “Ancient of Days” by W. Blake, drawing a circle around a selected galaxy with a compass. The colored image of a galaxy was taken in 1998 with one of the first Very Large Telescopes (VLT) located in the Paranal Observatory in Chile. The image was perfectly imprinted in high resolution technology. The background image represents a monochord – an ancient one-string musical instrument that symbolizes deep exploration of music and cosmology. The entire collection will comprise: The Tinker Bell Triplet, The Topsy-Turvy Galaxy NGC 1313, M100/NGC 4321, The Active Galaxy NGC 4945, Antenna Galaxies, The Centre of the Active Galaxy NGC 1097, Centaurus A, The Sombrero Galaxy.
