2014 $5 Silver Proof Colour Printed Domed Coin – Southern Sky Series – Orion
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.
