2017 Niue $2 Roswell UFO-Shaped Silver CoinItem code: MMP246
Never before seen, the coin in front of you is the FIRST EVER UFO shaped coin! Commemorating the Roswell Incident in 1947, where a supposed extra-terrestrial Flying Saucer crashed into the New Mexico desert, this silver coin is, well…its just perfect.
Cleverly struck in a domed format to provide the impression of a Flying Saucer, the master minters at work here have also – somehow – added relief to both sides of this 40 gram silver collector issue! In an unexpected additional twist, if you hold this coin under a light source for a period of time and then switch off the lights – the UFO Coin glows in the dark!!!
Sold out just after announcement in early July, Melbourne Mint Coins’ relationships across the world mean that we, and we alone, hold the Australian exclusive rights to this brand new silver issue.
This close encounter of the precious metal kind features brilliant innovation, clever custom presentation, AND a tiny limited mintage of just 700 coins. There will simply not be enough to satisfy demand… Yet, over and above that extreme exclusivity, the ideas and execution within this coin are truly outstanding.
