China celebrates its first Mars mission on new gold and silver coins

China is celebrating its first successful mission to orbit and land on Mars with a new set of gold and silver commemorative coins.

The People's Bank of China announced it will issue the limited edition Tianwen-1 coins on Monday (Aug. 30), three months after China's first Mars rover, Zhurong, began exploring the red planet. The three coins will each depict a different aspect of the history-making mission.
