1967 UFO Incident Celebrated on New Canadian Coins

21 Apr 2018  Sat

Stefan Michalak claimed that he saw two glowing objects land near Falcon Lake, Manitoba on 20th May 1967. He also said that when the UFO flew back, his clothes were burnt by its emissions. He also suffered from strange third-degree burns. Ever since then, the existence of UFOs has been questioned and discussed all over the world.

The Royal Canadian Mint released 4,000 colourful glow-in-the-dark egg-shaped $20 coins to commemorate this event. All these coins were sold out in two weeks. A different image appears when the coin glows in the dark. A black light flashlight activates the glow-in-the-dark features. The coin’s design recreates the strange occurrence.

In normal light, the reverse shows Michalak looking at the UFO land on earth near a lake. When Glow-in-the-dark feature is activated, The UFO showcases a red glow and yellow emissions fall on Michalak. The reverse also features the inscriptions CANADA, 20 DOLLARS, 2018. The obverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Talisman Coins is offering the coin for $99.99 U.S.
