Ever since science fiction rose to prominence in modern media with its tales of ray guns, spaceships, and some type of alien invaders, the belief in real-life aliens visiting the Earth has become a fixture of modern folklore. It has taken a variety of forms over the years, for example with the accidental starting of a public panic by Orson Welles’ famous 1938 broadcast of “War of the Worlds, but truly grew into a major subculture of its own with a mysterious crash near Roswell, New Mexico in 1947. That event led to the rise of “ufology,” an entire field of rumors, conjecture, and conspiracy theories that have seen periodic spikes in wider public fascination over the years, and the Scottsdale Mint pays tribute with the 2022 Republic of Ghana Alien 1 oz Silver Coin.


  • Arrived in a plastic flip, or in a mint tube for orders of 20!
  • Issued in 2022, struck by the Scottsdale Mint!
  • Limited mintage of 25,000 coins!
  • Contains 1 Troy oz of .999 pure silver.
  • 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 Republic of Ghana Alien Silver Coin showcases elegantly engraved artwork, and its Brilliant Uncirculated grade means it comes with its original-mint luster intact. Fully insured against even the most remote chance of loss or damage by Provident Metals, it ships in a plastic flip, with orders of 20 packaged in a mint tube.


The obverse side features the late Queen Elizabeth II in effigy, confirming the coin as legal tender. This is surrounded by a sleek decorative border and joined by the inscriptions “REPUBLIC OF GHANA – 2022,” “FIVE CEDIS,” “1 TROY OUNCE” and “999 FINE SILVER.”


The reverse side of the coin features the enigmatic face of an alien as they are frequently described by ufology enthusiasts, with vestigial facial features and huge almond-shaped eyes, and surrounded by a futuristic decorative border.


The Scottsdale Mint’s tribute to the folkloric phenomenon of the UFO comes at a time when the public fascination with aliens and rumors of their mysterious activities has risen to new heights. Fueled by the 2021 confirmation that the Pentagon had long been maintaining its own UFO tracking bureau, the new wave of UFO mania has seen multiple new sightings, off-the-record commentary from anonymous “inside” sources, and a veritable renaissance in overall commentary and debate. Whatever fact or fiction lies behind the “ufology” craze, its role in the fabric of modern mythology cannot be denied and makes an excellent subject for advanced pure silver collectibles like this one.
