Ursa Major Concave Commemorative Coin
Ursa Major is the largest constellation in the northern sky. Its name is Latin meaning "the great bear,” a name derived from the ancient Greek tale of Callisto, a nymph who was turned into a bear by Zeus' jealous wife Hera. The legend tells of how she was flung into the sky by her tail, explaining the elongated appendage. In the constellation, it is this odd long tail - which is comprised of the 7bright stars that form the Big Dipper - that makes Ursa Major the most recognizable shape in the night sky. A fitting tribute to the largest constellation in the northern sky, our massive 2.75" coin is a true work of numismatic art. Minted to the highest quality "Proof ” standard and plated in .999 pure silver, it has a highly detailed engraving of Ursa Major on the obverse. The constellationhas been beautifully colorized and brilliantly accented with 7 genuine Swarovski crystals marking its brightest stars. This special-edition coin features a unique concave profile to create a planetarium-like appearance and portray the vastness of the night sky.
