When science fiction popularized stories about alien invasions and “flying saucers,” it also gave rise to a kind of folklore in America and around the world that reflected a belief in real-life aliens visiting Earth. These aliens, described over the years as enigmatic grey beings with curiously underdeveloped facial features, huge eyes, and a penchant for kidnapping people from remote locations, became a particular article of faith with a subculture of UFO enthusiasts starting around the mid-point of the Twentieth Century. Rumors and sightings persist to this day and are commemorated by the Scottsdale Mint with the 2022 Proof Colorized Republic of Ghana Alien 1 oz Silver Coin.

Highlights:

  • Arrives in an elegant display case with a Certificate of Authenticity!
  • Issued in 2022, struck by the Scottsdale Mint!
  • Limited mintage of 1,500 coins!
  • Contains 1 Troy oz of .999 pure silver.
  • Carries a face value of 5 Cedis, legal tender of the Republic of Ghana.
  • Obverse side features Queen Elizabeth II.
  • Reverse side features a portrait of an alien.

The 2022 Proof Colorized Republic of Ghana Alien Silver Coin features glow-in-the-dark UV coloration to add drama to its alien portraiture, and its poof quality finish provides for brilliant mirrored backgrounds. It ships in a display case with a Certificate of Authenticity, fully insured by the team at Provident Metals.

Obverse

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

Reverse

The reverse side of the coin features the face of an alien with vestigial features and huge almond-shaped eyes with green UV coloration, surrounded by an intricate border at the rim.

History

The folklore phenomenon of “ufology” is about belief in the real-life existence of the kinds of aliens that science fiction has speculated about for decades, and has been a major presence in the landscape of modern myth for decades, especially ever since a mysterious crash near the town of Roswell in 1947 give rise to a whole subculture of dedicated believers. Ufology saw something of a renaissance beginning in 2017 when the public learned of the existence of a Pentagon task force dedicated to tracking “unexplained aerial phenomena,” and especially in 2021 when that task force released its first report and sparked a fresh wave of UFO mania.
