The idea of aliens coming to visit Earth from space has been a fascination in modern folklore ever since the rise of science fiction during the early Twentieth Century. Books, radio dramas, television shows and movies have portrayed alien invasions — or benevolent alien saviors — countless times, and over the decades a fascination with aliens has spilled over into the real world, with large subcultures of believers convinced that aliens and UFOs are a real-life secret being covered up by various governments or other interests. The Scottsdale Mint commemorates the phenomenon with the 2022 Antique Republic of Ghana Alien 1 oz Silver Coin.


  • Arrives in a plastic capsule or a skinboard for orders of five!
  • Issued in 2022, struck by the Scottsdale Mint!
  • Limited mintage of 25,000 coins!
  • Contains 1 Troy oz of .999 pure silver.
  • Carries a face value of 5 Cedis as legal tender of the Republic of Ghana.
  • Obverse side features the late Queen Elizabeth II.
  • Reverse side features a portrait of an alien.

The 2022 Antique Republic of Ghana Alien Silver Coin features beautiful engraved artwork whose details are brought out by its beautiful antiqued finish. It ships in a secure plastic capsule or in a skinboard (chipboard) for orders of five.


The obverse side features Queen Elizabeth II in effigy, verifying the coin as legal tender. She’s surrounded by a sleek decorative border and accompanied by the inscriptions “REPUBLIC OF GHANA – 2022,” “FIVE CEDIS,” “1 TROY OUNCE” and “999 FINE SILVER.”


The reverse side of the coin features the face of an alien with vestigial features and huge almond-shaped eyes, in line with the descriptions often given in the rumors and stories of ufologists. The image is surrounded by an intricate border at the rim.


Waves of enthusiasm for the idea of space alien visitors and for the UFO phenomena associated with them have occurred many times over the past eighty years, particularly starting with a mysterious crash in 1947 near the town of Roswell, New Mexico. That event gave rise to a durable subculture of “ufologists” who continue to this day to collate sightings and chase proof of real-life alien invaders and a high-level conspiracy to conceal their existence. The ufology movement got a fresh shot in the proverbial arm in 2021 with the release of a government report on UFOs, and fact or fiction, its claims remain an influential part of modern folklore.
