This innovative $5 dome-shaped coin features the Orion constellation spanning the coin as a celestial image and is framed by a rim featuring a compass design. It is a truly unique representation of the Orion constellation.
In Greek mythology, the great hunter Orion is so large his shadow is cast over the underworld. Similarly, the constellation bearing his name is visible from both hemispheres of the Earth. Orion’s stars adorn the third coin in the Southern Sky series. Orion’s position on the celestial equator makes the constellation visible from anywhere in the world. It represents the mythological Greek hunter with some of the sky’s brightest stars. The domed shape and magnificent colour of this silver proof $5 coin set off the brilliance of Orion as if in a celestial sphere.
