The Falcon Lake Incident is one of Canada's most well known UFO encounters, and a fascinating mystery that is still unexplained! With an unusually shaped contour that hints at an otherworldly theme, this ovoid coin recounts the Falcon Lake Incident in vivid colour, with black-light activated features that add a preternatural glow to the unknown craft.

Designed by artist Joel Kimmel, the reverse is based on Stefan Michalak's account of what transpired on May 20, 1967, near Falcon Lake, Manitoba. A full application of colour re-creates the springtime colours of the place where Michalak saw two objects appear in the midday sky. Based on the witness' descriptions and sketches, the oval-shaped UFO on the reverse has a steel-like appearance as it hovers above him. Blacklight-activated features complete the story by mimicking the distinctive red glow described by Michalak, while adding a yellow hue to the blast of hot air or gas that knocked the amateur prospector on his back and left him with mysterious burn marks.

This is the first shaped coin of its kind to include photoluminescent elements! Included with the coin is a black-light flashlight that activates the glow in the dark features.
