slight description of my entry

National Coin Week | A.J.

i cant show my coin because i have sent it in already. but i can give a brief description.
My coin is commemorating the 50th anniversary of the first picture of a black hole.
(This actually happend, as you might know)
The obverse shows the photo, with IN GOD WE TRUST, E PLUBUS ULUM, and 2019-2069.
The reverse shows the Earth, with satellite dishes from around the world collecting data for the photo, sending them to a point where it was constructed in Florida, with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, HALF DOLLAR/ONE DOLLAR/FIVE DOLLARS, and LIBERTY.
It is curved, where the obverse is concave, and the reverse is convex.
the half dollar is clad, the dollar is .999 fine silver, and the 5 dollar coin in .999 fine gold.

Good Idea A.J., you took a current event and turned it into a future commemorative. I hope it is a winner for you, some nice prizes to be had.
