Why purchase this 2018 Erfoud Meteorite Strike Silver coin?
This dramatically shaped coin commemorating the Erfoud Meteorite discovery in 2008 is the fourteenth release of the Coin Invest Trust's Meteorite Impact series. Issued for the Cook Islands, this 38.61 mm diameter coin is struck from 1/2 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver with a copper plated finish to emulate natural color of the Moroccan desert and includes an authentic piece of the meteorite! The random "breakthrough" striking technique guarantees that each coin in the 2,500 limited mintage will be unique.
Miniaturized Three-Dimensional Meteorite Strike
The reverse of this rimless coin represents a model of the Erfoud meteorite impact crater with an irregular puncture at the center, beside a genuine fragment of the meteorite adhered to the surface. The rim is inscribed "ERFOUD METEORITE" and "NWA6827," which is the abbreviation for the meteorite's official name of Northwest Africa 6827.
The obverse is adorned with the left justified profile of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, by sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley. Inscriptions include "ELIZABETH II," "COOK ISLANDS," "2 DOLLARS" and "2018."

In a world full of coins, there is not much difference in their overall shape. Despite various sizes and metal content, the shape of the coin is nearly always round and thin. There are, however, a few very unique coins struck by various Mints around the world that break these conformities. From domed coins to volcano shaped coins, you will be surprised the examples ModernCoinMart has to offer!
