2017 Cananda $25 A View of Canada From Space Fine Silver Coin (TAX Exempt)

On January 22, 1992, the NASA space shuttle Discovery launched from Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral with a crew of seven-including neurologist Dr. Roberta Bondar, M.D., Ph.D., who holds the distinction of being Canada's first female astronaut. The Royal Canadian Mint is proud to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Dr. Bondar's historic mission with this fine silver coin, whose convex shape provides the perfect canvas for recreating a view that is out of this world!

Few can lay claim to seeing our planet from space; but for Dr. Roberta Bondar, Canada's first woman astronaut and the world's first neurologist in space, the experience represents the fulfillment of a long-cherished dream. Throughout the mission she used her expertise to conduct over 40 advanced scientific experiments, helping to understand the body's ability to recover from exposure to space—a great contribution to the future of space travel!
