Product Description

Meteorite Impacts – Chergach 2017 Cook Islands 1/2oz Silver

Developing a successor of the highly innovative Tamdakht Meteorite coin of 2016 was no easy task. The resulting Chergach Meteorite coin is a stunning progression of the breakthrough technology with an enhanced concave deformity and cracks. The gilded finish is reminiscent of the Sahara Desert, where the chondrite meteorite was found ten years ago in July 2007 near Timbuktu. Naturally, a fragment of the actual meteorite rests in the crater depression.

REVERSE

The concave face replicates a meteorite impact. Gilded and weathered, a hole, slightly unique for each coin, punches through. A Chergach meteorite fragment is embedded.

OBVERSE

Gilded and carrying the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. A hole appears to tear through the coin.
