The Latest Releases in the Northern Sky Series

The Ursa Major domed-shaped coin from the Royal Australian Mint is now available at MCM!

The Royal Australian Mint has just released the latest addition to the Northern Sky series, Ursa Major, or Great Bear. Struck from 1 Troy oz. .999 fine silver, each coin boasts a colorized finish and a domed-shape to enhance the design of the constellation it features.

Throughout history, people have relied on the stars to serve as a compass, calendar, entertainment, source of light, and even a god. Read the MCM article on other odd-shaped coins.

Many groups of stars, or constellations, have been named after the shape/animal/person they resemble. Ursa Major is one of the 48 constellations that were recorded by Claudius Ptolemy, a Greco-Egyptian writer, mathematician, astrologer, poet, and astronomer who lived from 90-168 AD.

MCM is currently offering the Ursa Major coins in the original Mint packaging or certified by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) in PF69 & PF70 grades with Early Releases designations and our exclusive Australia label.
