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. 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.
With a mintage of only 5,000 coins, the 2016 Cassiopeia is sure to sell out quickly.
