Glow in the Dark Coin Features Canadian UFO

Glow in the Dark Coin Features Canadian UFO

Glow in the Dark Coin Commemorates the Falcon Lake Incident

A glow in the dark coin is nothing new for the Royal Canadian Mint, such coins have been minted for years.  But, the technique is now at a more impressive level.  This coin uses photo luminescent elements.  The coin includes a black light flashlight to bring out its eerie appearance when viewed in the dark.

 

The shape of the coin is like that of an egg, which is designed to add to the sensation of the mysterious subject matter, UFOs.

The Falcon Lake Incident

Canada’s Most Famous UFO Case

In 1967, Stephen Michalak encountered two cigar shaped objects in Manitoba near Falcon Lake, one of which he claimed landed.  The account includes a door opening, a bright light shining within, and indistinguishable voices.

 

This is just one of many UFO cases that has been reported over the years in Canada, and according to the Royal Canadian Mint’s website four in five Canadians believe in experiential life.

 

UFO sightings are prevalent enough in Canada that the phenomenon has to be considered part of the culture of the nation.

 

More on this incident can be learned by reading the book.

The Falcon Lake Incident Coin

The Depiction

The Falcon Lake Incident coin has two appearances, since it glows in the dark.  When viewed in normal lighting the coin shows Stephen Michalak lying on the ground after being knocked down by the exhaust from the craft.  The exhaust is claimed to have burned his clothing.  Above him the craft is lifting away.

 

The ground where Michalak is laying is bare, but just behind the barren ground is a lake.  Across the lake is a lush woodland.  The colors are vivid.

 

The stark difference in appearance of this glow in the dark coin is an eerie pink outline of the craft and greenish light from the exhaust vents of the craft to Michalak as he looks up from the ground.
