 2021 Canada $20 Silver Proof Coin - Canada's Unexplained Phenomena: The Montréal Incident


  • Coin #4 in a popular series. This is the fourth coin in a series that brings you some of Canada’s most fascinating tales of unexplained phenomena, fromunusual sightings to strange encounters.
  • Black light technology. Includes a flashlight that activates the black light paint technology embedded in this colour-over-engraved design. The hidden effect emphasizes the outline of the UFO and adds an intense, colourful glow to the light beams that are visible in the night sky and on the pool surface.
  • One of our most popular themes. Collectors love a good UFO story. The proof? All previous coins in the series sold out, and with a mintage of 5,000, this one is also expected to sell out quickly.

A UFO in downtown Montréal? The story of the Montréal Incident is re-told on the  fourth instalment of the Royal Canadian Mint’s wildly popular Canada’s Unexplained Phenomena series. Its reverse design presents the view from the rooftop pool of the Hotel Bonaventure Montréal, where, on the night of November 7, 1990, multiple witnesses observed a strange object that lit up the night sky—just like the UFO depicted on this 99.99% pure silver coin.

Fresnel beams—a Mint first. On the coin’s reverse, an array of features alters the way the light reflects off the coin, depending on the viewing angle. This engineered Fresnel effect—a first for the Royal Canadian Mint—makes it seem like light moves in, out and across the beams when the coin is tilted.

Packaging:

Coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a black beauty box.
