We are pleased to offer the Niue 2021 Impact Moments: Meteorite. This 2 oz .9999 pure silver 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 million years ago.
Each coin contains a piece of an 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 bears an unusual shape that on both faces displays a meteorite entering the Earth’s atmosphere. The reverse design depicts a volcanic eruption and a Triceratops – one of the most distinctive herbivorous dinosaurs that is often portrayed on modern coinage.
The obverse of the coin shows a dinosaur skeleton and an image of Queen Elizabeth II.
The Niue Island – 2021 Impact Moments: Meteorite delivers with a certificate and dedicated packaging, including an Acrylic Glass Display and Qureco box.
Contains 2 oz of .9999 fine Silver.
