The International Year of Astronomy was a year long celebration to mark the 400th anniversary of the first recorded astronomical observations with a telescope by Galileo Galilei and Johannes Kepler's publication of Astronomia Nova in the 17th century.
To celebrate this important event, the Landsharkz created this beautiful two geocoin set. Both coins have the official International Year of Astronomy logo and motto on one side. On the reverse side, one coin has the Gemini North telescope and the night sky from the Northern Hemisphere, while the other coin features Australia's own Anglo-Australian Telescope and part of the Southern Hemisphere night sky.
