To those who collect meteorite coins, a new stunning release in Meteorite Crater series by Niue! It’s dedicated to the Pingualuit crater, located on the Ungava Peninsula, in the administrative region of Nord-du-Québec, in Quebec, Canada. The coin is distinguished by its ultra-high relief with antique finish and a piece of real meteorite atop! Struck from 1 oz fine silver .999, it’s one of those rare things – only 666 pieces worldwide!
The obverse features the portrait of Her Majesty Elizabeth II surrounded by the inscriptions: the Queen’s name, the face value of the coin, its issuing country and year.
Possessing a deep blue coloration, the coin’s reverse imitates the bottom of the Pingualuk Lake with the piece of real meteorite embedded in the center. By geological standards, it is a young impact crater, around 1.4 million years old. The water of Pingualuk Lake, filling the crater, has one of the lowest salinity levels in the world, and it is one of the most transparent lakes with more than 35 m visibility. The coin comes housed in a luxury wooden box with a certificate of authenticity also provided. Be one of the lucky 666 owners of the new Meteorite Crater Coin and make your collection unique!
