People have always looked up at the sky and wondered at the meaning of the bright objects that wandered across the firmament, and this has been particularly true of Venus, the third-brightest object in the heavens behind the sun and moon. The Mint of Poland and the Republic of Cameroon have teamed up to commemorate the majesty of the second planet from the sun with the 2021 Proof Cameroon Venus 17.5 Gram Silver Coin, part of the Solar System series.
The 2021 Proof Cameroon Venus Silver Coin is a showcase of ambitious design and artistic skill that will satisfy the most demanding of collectors and the most avid astronomy buffs. Sporting a vivid portrait of the complex surface of Venus, intricate medallic artwork, decorative gilding, and a brilliant proof-quality finish, it comes in a themed presentation case with its own Certificate of Authenticity. Provident Metals ships this coin fully insured against any possibility of damage or loss.
Set under a magnifying lens that brings out its fine detail, a digital-print portrait of the surface of Venus dominates the coin’s obverse side, surrounded by a star map that names over a score of stars and galaxies and picks out a series of important constellations. The map is decorated with a dozen gilded accent points and the whole design is framed within a gilded rim.
The Republic of Cameroon’s coat of arms of Cameroon features on the reverse, along with the inscriptions “Republique du Cameroun,” “2021,” and “500 Francs CFA” and English and French renderings of the motto “Peace,” “Work,” “Fatherland.”
The brightness of the planet now known to us as the Morning Star has inspired countless myths and legends around the world for thousands of years, among them the Roman goddess of beauty and love who provides its best-known modern moniker. In modern times, it has roused interest from planetary scientists as a study in runaway greenhouse effects: its hyper-dense carbon dioxide atmosphere makes it, in fact, the hottest planet in the solar system.
