Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
Seeing the Northern Lights (also known as the Aurora Borealis) in person is something that is likely at the top of many bucket lists. This should come as no surprise, when one considers the immense ethereal beauty that light up the sky with a dazzling fire-show of colours. The Northern Lights are caused by solar wind, and though the earth possesses insulating armour to deflect solar particles, some of these particles do get trapped, and they bring about huge amounts of electricity. As these electrical currents move towards the planet, the magnetic field drags them toward the Polar Regions where they fuse with the nitrogen and oxygen in the atmosphere, and illuminate the sky with the glowing waves of colour we can see with our naked eyes. Artist Julius Csotonyi has created a beautifully symbolic image of the Aurora Borealis splashed across the sky, magnificently painted in full-colour. The combination of the Lights and the howling wolf paint an almost chillingly-lifelike depiction of the Northern landscape. This dazzling coin is struck in a half-ounce of fine 99.99% fine silver. The bright metal is symbolic of the wintery landscape of the North, and is a perfect backdrop for the stunningly-coloured sky. This coin is sure to be a smashing success as a gift for any sky-gazer or nature lover you know; it will also make a unique and artful addition to any collection of fine silver coins.
