This extraordinary coin was produced from a fragment of the Seymchan meteorite.


It was found in 1967 in Magadanskaya oblast’, Siberia, Russia. Pallasites are among the rarest of meteorites. They have translucent yellow or green crystals of the gem mineral olivine embedded in nickel-iron metal.


The Seymchan meteorite is a fascinating witness to the origins of our solar system 4.56 billion years ago. The meteorite iron remained unchanged so it may demonstrate inclusions, corrosion and fine cracks. The structure of a pallasite meteorite is unlike anything found on Earth. It perhaps resembles what lies deep beneath our feet. The Earth has an iron core surrounded by a thick layer, the mantle, composed of olivine. Pallasite meteorites come from the core-mantle boundary of a small rocky planet formed early in the solar system.


This 1 oz. pure meteorite coin is topped with Chromonite colour application. Its mintage is restricted because of the rarity of the material. It was only possible to mint 826 coins, making each coin a collector’s item that is as rare as it is fascinating.
