Human beings have had a long-standing fascination with the expanse beyond our own world. From the youngest stargazer to the most established astronomer, the night sky has always presented great possibilities. From the chance to understand other planets to the hope of discovering new entities, the solar system has proven to inspire imagination, analysis and self-reflection.

The names of planets are true testimonies to the special affinity that humans have always felt for them, sharing their identities with gods and goddesses from classical mythology:

  • Mercury - the lightning-fast messenger of the Roman gods
  • Venus - the Roman goddess of love
  • Mars - the Roman god of war
  • Jupiter - the Roman god of sky and thunder
  • Saturn - the king of Titans and the father of time
  • Uranus - the Greek god of sky
  • Neptune - the Roman god of the sea
  • Pluto - the god of the underworld

This exciting new product combines human fascination with the worlds beyond our own, with lifelong curiosity for the coins we hold in our own hands and pockets. In its exciting packaging of a pop-up book and filled with information about our Solar System, it is a true celebration of engineering, science, artistry, innovation and imagination.
