It is the first time that a UK coin has been sent into space, and celebrates David Bowie and his hits including Starman, Life on Mars? and Space Oddity. The coin reached 35,656m and orbited the Earth’s atmosphere for 45 minutes before safely descending back to Britain.
The competition is now closed for a chance of winning this special David Bowie UK 2020 One Ounce Silver Proof Coin.
We will announce the winner shortly.
