To celebrate the 550th anniversary of the birth of Poland’s most famous astronomer, a coin issued in collaboration with Germania Mint.
Nicolaus Copernicus launched the scientific revolution and had a significant impact on its development. His most important achievement is the heliocentric theory, which stated that the Earth and other planets revolve around the Sun, not the other way around, as was believed at the time. Copernicus published this theory in his work entitled “De revolutionibus orbium coelestium” (On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres).
Designed by Natalia Danysz, the obverse of the coin with the image of Copernicus is ennobled with an amber sun. The reverse is a 16th-century solar system.
