2012 & 2013 & 2014 Five Dollars Southern Sky Series - Crux & Pavo & Orion Set

In 2012 the Royal Australian Mint (RAM) released the first coin of a new Southern Sky coin series. Commemorating the constellation Crux, this 1-oz. silver proof coin depicted this group of stars against a vivid blue sky, becoming the world’s first colorized domed coin. The design on the reverse of the coin uses silver stars aligned to form a cross against a blue sky background.

Not surprisingly, the Southern Crux coin has been honored with several international coin design awards.

The 2012 1 oz. Silver Southern Sky Crux coins were followed in 2013 by the green and light blue-colored Pavo coin, and in 2014 by the Orion issue, which features an orange and purple sky.
