Special features:
  • OUR PLANET, OUR HOME, OUR FUTURE: This pure silver coin celebrates our little blue planet, the "Mother" of life as we know it! It is a love letter to a unique world that is home to humankind and millions of other species.
  • A BLACK LIGHT-ACTIVATED GLOW: Black light-activated technology brings a colourful intensity to the Milky Way Galaxy.
  • BOROSILICATE GLASS: On the coin's reverse, our planet is made of recycled borosilicate glass that gives it a rounded appearance and a glassy sheen, like it is illuminated by the sun.  
  • SPACE VIEW: The reverse design uses the vastness of space and the barren lunar landscape to emphasize our planet's life support systems—the water, land and atmosphere that have allowed life to thrive here.
  • DETAILED LUNARSCAPE: The natural shine of 99.99% pure silver illuminates all the engraved details that re-create the battered and cratered surface of the moon.
  • A UNIFYING MESSAGE: Past, present and future—we are celebrating the home that has nurtured generations before us, but we are also mindful of the need to preserve it for those generations still to come.
  • INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE: The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins.
  • LOW MINTAGE: Limited to 4,000 coins worldwide.

Design:
Designed by Canadian artist Jamie Desrochers, the reverse features a breathtaking view of Earth from space. The scene is enhanced with black light-activated technology that lights up the Milky Way behind our home planet, which is made from recycled borosilicate glass, while the partial view of a battered lunar landscape emphasizes Earth's ability to support life. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
