At just over 93 million miles away, the Sun is the nearest star to our planet and provides seemingly infinite warmth, light and energy. Over 4.7 billion years in existence (thought to be in its middle age), the Sun uses nuclear fusion to form helium from the simplest atom in the universe, hydrogen. It is classified as a yellow dwarf star that exhibits temperatures ranging from about 5500 degrees Celsius to over 15000000 degrees Celsius. Amazingly, the Sun makes up well over 99% of the mass of the solar system but the density is only 40% greater than that of water.

This coin is legal tender in the Republic of Cameroon, a central African country located at the junction of western and central Africa. It bears a denomination of 500 Francs CFA. Issued by the Bank of Central African States, this stunning coin also comes in gorgeous proof condition, meaning it was expertly crafted by the mint from hand-selected planchets, polished dies and multiple strikes to produce beautifully frosted details rising over mirror-like fields! Plus, each coin will come housed in its original mint packaging that consists of a special presentation frame with a solar system spiraling in the background.
