THE STORY
Imagine driving on a snowy highway at night and seeing a row of lights in the sky… and you suddenly realize it’s a giant UFO! This is the scene depicted on the fifth Canada’s Unexplained Phenomena coin from the Royal Canadian Mint.
 
On the night of December 11, 1996, at least 31 people in four different areas of the Yukon reported seeing a UFO in the sky. The bright lights described by the witnesses have been re-created on this rectangular coin’s reverse, but a more complete picture of the giant UFO comes into view when the black light paint technology is activated.
 
UNIQUE SELLING PROPOSITION
Includes a black light flashlight. Each coin ships with a black light flashlight that activates the technology embedded in the reverse design. When viewed in normal lighting conditions, the coin’s reverse shows the mysterious lights that appeared in the night sky;
when the black light paint technology is activated, the full shape of the giant UFO—one of the largest ever reported—is revealed!


DESIGN

The reverse design by Canadian artist Neil Hamelin features the artist’s rendition of a 1996 UFO encounter on the Yukon’s Klondike Highway, near Fox Lake (Kwätän ’aya). In this wintry scene, two motorists have pulled over to observe the mysterious lights in the night sky. The lights are amplified by black light paint technology; when activated, the effect provides a more complete picture of the huge UFO that was spotted in four different areas on the night of December 11, 1996. The obverse features a wormhole background and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt

  • Like 2020’s The Clarenville Event coin, this 1 oz. 99.99% pure silver rectangular coin features a horizontal orientation, which emphasizes the enormous size of the UFO that was spotted over Fox Lake (Kwätän ’aya) in Yukon in 1996.
  • The obverse’s wormhole-like pattern is a nod to the UFO theme.
  • If you enjoy UFO stories, this coin is for you! But hurry, mintage is limited to 7,500 and all previous UFO coins sold out quickly.
