The Southern Lights may be lesser known than the Northern Lights, but the cosmic light show is just as breathtaking. If you time it just right you can catch a glimpse as the dazzling coloured lights dance across the sky in the Mackenzie Basin.
The holographic effect on this 1oz silver proof coin captures some of the essence of this sensational display.
This stunning coin captures the magic of the Southern Lights both in its colour and its shimmering surface. The Southern Lights can range in colour from pink to green to purple, with the colours dependent on a number of factors. The type of solar wind particle, the type of gas molecule and the electrical state at the time of the collision all have an effect on the eventual colour of the aurora.
This 1oz silver proof coin has been produced using a holographic foiling technique in an effort to capture the magical shimmering of the Southern Lights. It features the picturesque Church of the Good Shepherd at Lake Tekapo where the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve is located.
No more than 1,500 of the 2017 $1 Southern Lights 1oz Silver Coin will be released worldwide!
Each coin is accompanied by an individually numbered certificate of authenticity, and displayed in an elegant case.
