In 1905, Albert Einstein published his Special Theory of Relativity, dealing with how objects in motion relative to one another behave and interact. It was a full decade before the greatest scientist of the 20th century finished his General Theory of Relativity—the scientific theory that literally changed how we look at the world forever. Einstein's concept of space-time is demonstrated by the fantastic 2015 Space-Time Continuum 1/2 oz silver coin from the Cook Islands. Using mind-blowing design techniques, each of these square coins is struck from .999 fine silver for a total of one-half troy ounce (0.5 troy oz) of pure silver content. They are legal tender, each with a face value of 2 Dollars, and are limited to a worldwide mintage of only 1,500 coins!

The reverse design is concave, demonstrating how the fabric of space-time bends, curves, and warps due to the presence of mass (i.e. gravity). In the center of the design, a magnetic sphere can be detached from the "tunnel" into space-time created by the sphere's mass. "SPACE-TIME CONTINUUM" is inscribed around one of the rows of the continuum, along with mathematical equations describing the concept.

The obverse, which is convex in the middle, is inscribed with the issuing nation "COOK ISLANDS" and the pictured monarch "ELIZABETH II" at the top rim. The effigy of HM Queen Elizabeth II designed by Ian Rank-Broadley is placed in the bottom-left corner of the design, with the denomination "2 DOLLARS" inscribed against the bottom rim near the right corner. The coin's edge is reeded, and it comes safely ensconced in its original display box.

Once other scientists independently confirmed that Einstein's concepts and calculations worked, the General Theory of Relativity reshaped how humanity views the universe (as well as subjective reality). The notion that space cannot be separated from time was strange enough; Einstein's discovery that the four-dimensional (length, width, height, time) space-time grid was actually warped by objects' gravitational fields was revelatory. Celebrate this incredible, world-changing theory in a half-ounce of pure silver with the limited-mintage 2015 Space-Time Continuum 1/2 oz silver coin!
