Mercury is both one of the longest-known and most mysterious of the Solar system’s planets, the closest world to the sun and observed by cultures throughout history: its fast orbital period inspired the Romans to name it after Mercurius, the wing-footed messenger of the gods. However, it was only in the 21st century that detailed photography of the planet’s surface became possible, making for sensational gains in our knowledge about the smallest of the terrestrial bodies of the inner solar system.

The obverse side of this coin showcases those pioneering surveys in a digital-print portrait of Mercury under a lens that magnifies the revolutionary detail of the Mariner 10 probe’s surveys. This is set amidst a detailed star map that picks out key constellations and names over twenty major stars and galaxies. The coin’s decorative gilding includes a dozen accent points on that star map and a rim that frames the design.

The Cameroonian coat of arms is featured on the reverse side along with the inscriptions “Republique du Cameroun,” “2021” and “500 Francs CFA,” and English and French renditions of the motto “Peace,” “Work,” “Fatherland.”
