More info

Supernova is nothing but a stellar explosion. To put in other words, it is actually an explosion of a star. So massive is the explosion that for a brief amount of time, the explosion actually outshines the entire galaxy in which it explodes. Whenever an explosion takes place, energy is emitted and supernova is no exception. The amount of energy radiated in one supernova explosion is equal to the amount of energy that is radiated by our Sun so far plus the energy that it will radiate for the rest of its life. A supernova is so bright that it literally takes weeks and sometimes months for the brightness to fade away. During this explosion, luminous radiations are burst out and almost all of the material of the exploding star is expelled in outer space. The material that is expelled from the exploding star travels at a very high speed of 30,000 kilometers in one second. This explosion sends out a shockwave in nearby outer space. The outer space that we keep saying is actually referred to as interstellar medium which is defined as matter that exists in space between stars within a galaxy.


The coin's reverse depicts a beautiful space phenomena, the gorgeous Supernova, with a spectacular coloration in red, orange and blue. On the top of the reverse, the inscriptions: “Space Phenomena Supernova” – the name of the coin and “3 Oz 999 Fine Silver” – the weight and the fineness of the Silver. On the bottom of the coin, the inscription: “2016” – the issue year. The coin's obverse depicts the Coat of Arms of Benin and the face value: “1500 Francs CFA”.
