Following the exploration of the cosmos in 2015, the 2017 edition in the Austrian Mint’s innovative and ingenious two-tone Silver Niobium series embarks on a technological journey in the opposite direction, to the microcosms. For the past decade and a half these coins have been employing the combination of silver and niobium to explore fittingly fascinating themes, the journey of scientific discovery featured on Microcosm is no exception.
What makes the Silver Niobium coins so special is the fact that their niobium tones arise without the application of color, purely through light refraction on an extremely thin, transparent oxide layer. Microcosm, like all the other coins in the series, truly glistens with knowledge.
