The commemorative coin is dedicated to the International Year of Astronomy, i.e. 2009, proclaimed by United Nations. Four hundred years ago Galileo Galilei for the first time made use of the telescope to observe objects of the Universe. The International Year of Astronomy means peaceful global work with the purpose of exploring the enigmas of anthropogenesis and our Universe origin, i.e. the common heritage linking all earthlings. Astronomy is an important world outlook science and in such a way there is a good opportunity to conceive its role in development of the civilization. Price, Hryvnas: 12481

On the reverse against the raised background there are depicted: on the left - Galileo Galilei (above) and a conventionalized medieval miniature of starry sky observation (below), on the right - one of galaxies (above) and a radio telescope (below). Against the smooth background of the coin there are: the image of an observatory (below) and the inscriptions above: the bow-shaped МІЖНАРОДНИЙ (International), РІК (year) and (in the centre of the composition) АСТРОНОМІЇ (of astronomy), in which the Saturn image substitutes for the O letter.
