About This Item

Compass Rose Vela

 This coin marks the 10th anniversary of the official Compass Rose Geocoin® series. This compass rose design is not based on an actual compass rose, but incorporates design aspects from the previous Compass Rose Geocoin series dating the years 2010-2014.

The back of this coin focuses on the ancient and large constellation Argo Navis. The constellation has since been divided into three separate constellations: Carina (the keel of the ship), Puppis (the stern of the ship), and Vela (the sails of the ship). Pyxis (the mariner’s compass) was formerly a part of Argo’s mast, but is now considered its own separate constellation.

The image shown on the back is based on the Argo Navis drawing by Johannes Hevelius, a polish astronomer known as “the founder of lunar topography” for his detailed charts of the moon’s surface. This drawing had been included in his star catalog, Prodromus Astronomiae. The zodiac signs circling this image signifies the other constellations that are found on his maps of the sky.

    Argo Navis - Black nickel with polished nickel (Limited Edition)
