Ounce of Space is an outstanding series of classic bullion coins skillfully enriched with meteorite fragments. It’s an amazing work of fantasy showcasing world famous bullion coins enhanced with precious plating, artist coloring and a genuine Martian meteorite insert. Each coin boasts a unique space-themed design brilliantly applied on a 1 oz silver 999 piece.
The colored design is based on Adolph A. Weinman's 1916 "Walking Liberty", widely considered one of the most beautiful American coins ever minted. Striding confidently toward the sunrise, draped in the strength of the Stars and Stripes, Liberty carries branches of laurel and oak in her arms to symbolize both civil and military glory. The obverse features a striking heraldic eagle with shield, an olive branch in the right talon and arrows in the left.
The authenticity of the Martian meteorite crumb embedded into the coin is guaranteed by a member of IMCA. Thanks to high resolution color printing and glossy finish each Ounce of Space coin is indeed a wonderful collector’s item! With the issue limit of up to 1 000 pieces worldwide, the coin comes housed in a presentation box. The certificate of authenticity is protected by a hologram with a unique laser-engraved serial number on it.
