Our fascination with UFOs and unexplained phenomena is featured on this 2022 $20 Yukon Encounter fine silver coin, which transforms as select elements of the full colour image luminesce with the included black light flashlight. This is the fifth coin in an ongoing annual series, with previous issues selling out immediately and becoming extremely difficult to obtain in the secondary market.

On the night of December 11, 1996, at least 31 people in four different areas of the Yukon reported seeing a UFO in the sky. The bright lights described by the witnesses have been re-created on this rectangular when viewed under natural light. Then turn on the included black light to reveal greater details of a circular craft as envisioned by artist Neil Hamelin. Mintage is limited to 7,500. GST/HST exempt.

About the Event:
On December 11th, 1996 an incredible UFO event took place along a 216 km stretch of the Klondike Highway in the Yukon Territory. The sightings occurred in three major areas along the highway: Fox Lake, The Village of Carmacks, and The Village of Pelly Crossing, with a total of 31 witnesses reporting to have seen a UFO. All the witnesses indicated that the UFO was extremely large with a long row of lights, comparing it in size to a football stadium. 22 of the witnesses provided detailed accounts, with 14 of the witnesses even provided drawings of the UFO.
