Optaglio for Fine Silver Coin - 25th Anniversary Canadian Space Agency

03 December 2015



2014 was a year that marked the 25th anniversary of the Canadian Space Agency. The Royal Canadian Mint celebrated this milestone with a unique silver collectors coin featuring an achromatic hologram that brings the CSA’s work to life. The coin was unveiled 30. 8. 2014 at the International Astronautical Congress. 

The coin is produced in 99.99% silver and has a limited mintage of 10.000. Achromatic nanogravure effect was used to depict the astronaut and the Canadarm2 was made on the basis of a precise 3D computer model. Shadows of small details and crevices were enhanced by new ambient occlusion technology.
