Why purchase this brilliant uncirculated 2022 3 oz. silver spherical coin replica of the planet Earth with a Chondrite Meteor impact?
The fourth release of the Blue Marble series represents the Earth in an endangered state, with a genuine Chondrite Meteorite impacting the Pacific Ocean. Although the doomsday scenario has been popularized as science fiction in multiple books and movies, the possibility of the earth's destruction as a result of a meteor is indeed real. Scientists estimate that a meteor measuring 96km (60 miles) in diameter would be sufficient to extinguish all life on the planet.
Realistic Representation of the Earth's Fragility
Obverse: The obverse is graced with the Coat of Arms of Barbados, covering the continent of Antarctica. Inscriptions include "BARBADOS," "3 OZ," "5 DOLLARS," "AG 999" and "2022." The emblem was applied to the coin's surface by hand using an innovative water transfer print method.
Reverse: The reverse is sculpted as a miniature planet earth, with its oceans coated with a brilliant, translucent shade of blue, while its land masses are formed with a textured silver surface. A Chondrite Meteorite, which is properly scaled to be an earth-destroying size, is positioned in the Pacific Ocean.
