This amazing coin is the third release of the “Planets and Gods” series, which comes after the Mars coin. The coin is dedicated to the seventh planet from the Sun – Uranus. It is the planet whose name is derived directly from a figure of Greek mythology. Uranus was the ancient Greek deity of the Heavens and the earliest supreme god.
On the coin, he is depicted as a gigantic man with long muscular arms and legs, holding the zodiac-wheel. The coin’s background is tinted in blue-green color in order to match the planet’s color. The color of Uranus comes from its atmosphere. This planet is composed mostly of hydrogen, helium, and methane, with trace amounts of other elements and molecules. This substance causes the blue-green color of Uranus. Uranus, with its featureless, blue-green disk, is the only planet to be named after a Greek and not a Roman god. He ruled the universe, and his name means sky.
