4 Billion Years in the Making...
The Estacado Meteorite Coin
Our Selection for Coin of the Year!
Scientists say that a ballpoint pen dropped from the Empire State Building could actually kill a human. Now imagine what a 640-pound meteorite hurtling from space at 122 mph could do! That’s what happened billions of years ago when the Estacado meteorite landed in what is now Hale County, Texas.
Now, you can experience this momentous event represented on a .925 pure Silver and Titanium $2 coin. The cut-out in the coin represents the path the meteor took as it crashed to earth. Inside the cutout is a genuine piece of the four-billion-year-old Estacado meteorite, discovered in Texas in what is now Big Bend National Park. Can you imagine holding and owning something that is actually older than the earth? The unique Silver and Titanium alloy used to strike this ground-breaking coin allows various metal colorations, finishes and even glisten – all in an impressive 50 mm diameter and .5 oz weight. The obverse features a rendering of Big Bend National Park, with a shining Rio Grande river. The reverse features the image of Earth in space. Only 2,500 of this Cook Island non-circulating legal tender issue will be minted. If there is just one coin you want to buy this year, this is the one. Do not miss out. Order yours today.
