IMPACT MOMENTS: METEORITE 2021 Niue 2oz high relief silver coin

The Niue Island – 2021 Impact Moments: Meteorite 2 oz Silver High Relief coin was created by Germania Mint in partnership with Numizzmi. The two companies have teamed up to create a unique coin with a motif referring to the extinction of dinosaurs as a result of a meteorite hitting the earth 66 mln years ago. Each coin contains a piece of this extremely rare fragment of galactic rock called Muonionalusta – a more than 4.5 billion year old meteorite discovered in 1906 in northern Sweden.

The coin has an unusual shape that on both sides symbolizes a meteorite entering the Earth’s atmosphere.

The coin is made in high relief, which helps to highlight the wonderful details of the design. Both sides of the coin are richly ennobled with Antique Finish and colors, emphasizing the catastrophic effect. To appreciate the full detail we suggest a diversion over to AGAUNEWS as Mik has produced some amazing images that capture the incredible relief and detail of this coin.

Obverse

The obverse of the coin also shows a dinosaur skeleton and an image of Queen Elizabeth II. The reverse depicts a volcanic eruption and a Triceratops – reaching 9 meters in length, one of the most distinctive herbivorous dinosaurs.

Packaging

Presented in a solid acrylic frame with a custom insert.  A certificate of authenticity is enclosed and customised themed shipper contains your coin.
