The third release in the Solar System series of silver coins issued by the island nation of Niue is now available at SD Bullion! These 2018 Space Shuttle Proof Silver Coins contain an actual piece of insulation taken from the payload bay area of the famous space shuttle, Discovery.

This series is a result of a partnership between Niue and the prestigious New Zealand Mint. Over the past few years, this tiny island nation has launched one quality bullion coin after another, attracting buyers from across the globe!

Each of these coins contains 1 troy ounce of 0.999 pure silver. Moreover, every coin is assigned legal tender status with face values of $2 (NZD).

A transparent casing carries the precious part of the Discovery space shuttle. This casing is housed within the coin itself -- comfortably ensconced within a hole in the coin -- visible from both sides.

A colorized portrayal of the Space Shuttle going in to dock at the International Space Station on the reverse grabs your attention right away. The transparent casing mentioned before is cleverly worked into the design of the space shuttle's portrayal. Silver spots can be seen on the black background of the night sky, gleaming through like real stars. 

On the other hand, the familiar rendition of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is featured on the obverses of these coins. Since these coins are legal tender coins recognized by Niue, their obverses bear the image of its Head of State. This image is encircled by the name of the issuing nation, year of issue, and the weight and purity of silver in the coin.

Grab these 2018 Space Shuttle Proof Silver Coins and complete your Solar System series of silver coins today. Not only will you be completing your sets, but you will also add much-needed diversity to your precious metals portfolio with pure silver. All this, while you get to own an genuine piece of insulation that has been to space and back!
