Few can lay claim to seeing our planet from space; but for Dr. Roberta Bondar, Canada's first woman astronaut and the world's first neurologist in space, the experience represents the fulfillment of a long-cherished dream. Throughout the mission she used her expertise to conduct over 40 advanced scientific experiments, helping to understand the body's ability to recover from exposure to space—a great contribution to the future of space travel!

A beautiful gift for the future scientist in your family! Order today!

Designed by Canadian artist Alexandra Lefort, your coin combines colour with glow-in-the-dark effects to recreate a breathtaking view of Earth from space. The partial view of the Western Hemisphere places the focus on North America—specifically Canada—while the application of colour captures the nuances that characterize the different regions, and the different blues that mark the ocean depth. Within the outer band that frames the field, the 25th anniversary of Dr. Roberta Bondar's historic space mission is commemorated by the number "25" and a miniature depiction of the space shuttle Discovery, as it appeared on Dr. Bondar's personal mission crest.

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
