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