This is the tenth coin in the silver niobium series, and features the science of Bionics.

Bionics deals with the transfer of lessons from nature into the human world, and is applied in solving engineering problems and developing modern technology. The word comes from the Greek “bion” meaning unit of life. Many think of the “Bionic Woman” and the “Six Million Dollar Man” and understand the field of bionics to be biology and electronics. In fact, that only covers a part of the broad and complex field.

The obverse shows the complex nautilus shell, often used as a model for leading edge modern design buildings. Above the nautilus an eagle flies – symbolizing the inspiration for an aircraft. The lotus flower to the left gave rise to repellents. The reverse side features an interior view of the Munich Olympic stadium, the roof of which was designed based on findings in the bionic world based on radiolarian shells. A highly magnified radiolarian shell is shown in the foreground.
