2016 $20 The Universe Fine Silver Coin (TAX Exempt) 147000
Pondering the universe is as old as the ages. It's the common thread that connects us to every civilization that has come before. And while today's high-tech world has brought greater understanding, new questions always arise, eyes still gaze upwards on starry nights, and we still wonder, "Who are we? Why are we here?" There are numerous observatories around the world probing the universe to find answers to humanity's ageless questions. Among them is the Observatoire du Mont-Megantic, Quebec.
