History is rife with exceptional images of Planet Earth from space. The very first of these photographs was taken in 1946 when a 35mm camera attached to a V-2 rocket was sent to space. Though historic, the image itself is not terribly remarkable. However, as technology has developed, some truly spectacular views of earth have been captured. Some of the most famous pictures include The Earthrise taken during the Apollo 8 mission, and the Blue Marble, captured by the Apollo 17 crew.  

The obverse of 2023 Proof Niue Silver Earth From Above Coins contains a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Late Majesty ruled from 1952 until 2022, making her the longest-reigning monarch in British history. In this design, she faces right and wears the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. Inscriptions read Elizabeth II, Niue 2022, One Dollar, 1 oz .999 Silver.
