Why purchase this 2017 Chergach Meteorite Strike Gilded Silver coin?

This silver coin represents the thirteenth meteorite adorned coin issued by Coin Invest Trust. The magnificent release, honoring the Chergach Meteorite strike discovered in 2007 near Timbuktu, is fully gilded to represent the sandy terrain of the impact's location in the Sahara Desert. The 38.61 mm diameter coin is struck from 1/2 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver with an overstriking method to create a realistic puncture in the coin. Each coin is embellished with a genuine meteorite fragment; as a result, each coin of the 2,500 mintage issued by the Cook Islands will be absolutely unique.

Three Dimensional Break-Through Meteorite Strike

The reverse of this dramatic high relief, rimless coin, features the concave shape of the meteorite impact crater, radiating with stress fractures with an actual irregular hole punched through at the center, and a genuine piece of the meteorite embedded in the surface. Inscribed "CHERGACH METEORITE."

The obverse is adorned with the left-justified profile of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, as designed by sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley, inscribed "ELIZABETH II," "COOK ISLANDS," "2 DOLLARS" and "2017."

Unique Coin in Original Mint Packaging

This 2017 Cook Islands $2 1/2 oz. Gilt Silver Chergach Meteorite Strike coin is encapsulated and presented as originally received from the Mint, in a custom designed themed metal tin, accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
