The Roswell Incident


 In early July, 1947, a rancher discovered unidentifiable debris of a mysterious object crashed in his sheep pasture 30 miles north of Roswell.  The Roswell Army Air Field (RAAF) issued a statement claiming to have recovered a crashed “flying disk.” On July 8, “RAAF Captures Flying Saucer on Ranch in Roswell Region” was the top story in the Roswell Daily Record and the next day, RAAF changed its statement to say that the object was a weather balloon, not a flying disk as they previously reported.  However, to anyone who had seen the debris (or the newspaper photographs of it), it was clear that whatever this thing was, it was no weather balloon. This revised statement sparked immediate controversy and has continued to be a topic of debate 70 years later. Some people believed–and still believe–that the crashed vehicle had not come from Earth at all. Nearly 50 years after the story of the mysterious debris broke, the U.S. military issued a report linking the incident to a top-secret atomic espionage project called Project Mogul. Still, many people continue to embrace the UFO theory, and hundreds of curiosity seekers visit Roswell and the crash site every year.


What happened in Roswell? UFO crash? An alien encounter or a government cover-up?

2018 Canadian $20 The Falcon Lake UFO Incident 1 oz Fine Silver Coin - Canada's Unexplained Phenomina (Glow-In-The-Dark)

 

Commemorates Canada’s most famous UFO sighting! Includes a black light flashlight! 

It is one of Canada’s most famous UFO encounters! According to Stefan Michalak’s account, two glowing objects descended from the sky on May 20, 1967, near Falcon Lake, Manitoba, where one landed close enough for him to approach. When the craft suddenly took flight, its emission set Michalak’s clothes ablaze, leaving him with mysterious burns… and an unusual tale to tell. This coin’s otherworldly shape is the perfect fit for such a story as the colourful coin captures the imagination as it recounts the Falcon Lake Incident, with black light-activated features to add a glow to the craft and the blast that knocked Michalak to the ground!

 

Features

• The first shaped coin of its kind to include photo-luminescent elements! Included with this coin is a black light flashlight that activates the glow-in-the-dark features, which add a red and purple glow to the craft (as per Stefan Michalak’s account) and a yellow one to the blast.
• An exhilarating retelling of one of Canada’s many fascinating stories of unexplained phenomena — a story that captures the imagination and seemingly defies explanation!
• Ovoid shape adds a curious twist to this re-telling of a mysterious event—one that fuelled speculation about the origins of the craft and the possibility of extraterrestrial visitors.
• A full application of vibrant colour over engraving results in an unforgettable scene, one filled with textural details that make this a superbly crafted example of visual storytelling.
• Limited collectible is set apart by an unusual theme and a glowing design—a sure conversation-starter.
• Only 4,000 coins will be made worldwide.
• Composed of 99.99% fine silver. This coin is GST/HST exempt.

 

Design

Designed by artist Joel Kimmel, this coin 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’s descriptions and sketches, the oval-shaped UFO on the reverse has a steel-like appearance as it hovers above him. Black light-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. The reverse includes the engraved word “CANADA”, the face value “20 DOLLARS” and the year “2018”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

 

The Story

Around midday on May 20, 1967, amateur prospector Stefan (Stephen) Michalak was on the hunt for precious metals in Whiteshell Provincial Park when he suddenly noticed two strange objects in the sky. Both glowed with an intense red and  glare as they descended from the sky; one abruptly left the scene, but the other landed roughly 50 metres away from Michalak, who moved in to get a closer look.

The humming object was described as having a sulphurous smell, and it appeared to be made from a stainless steel-like material. Peering into a brightly lit opening, Michalak heard muffled sounds and tried calling out to them, only to be met with silence. He touched the seamless sides of the craft, which melted the tips of his glove; and when the UFO suddenly lifted off the ground, it emitted a blast of hot air or gas that knocked Michalak on his back, igniting his shirt and causing a grid-like pattern of third-degree burns to his chest.

What was the strange craft? Where did it come from? It’s a story that has more questions than answers. Michalak never claimed the craft was an alien one; neither did he waver in his account of what he had seen and experienced that day, even under the scrutiny of doctors, scientists, law enforcement officials and other authorities, who could neither corroborate nor disprove the close encounter.

Did you know…
Canada is a hotbed of UFO activity! According to a survey, 1,131 UFO sightings were reported in Canada in 2016… but only 4% of these could not be explained. Quebec also leads all other provinces in reported UFO sightings.
In 1967 (the same year as the Falcon Lake Incident), the world’s first UFO landing pad was built in St. Paul, Alta.
Another famous Canadian UFO sighting took place in 1967 — this time, in Shag Harbour, N.S., where a series of orange lights were seen flashing in the sky before the unknown object crashed into the ocean.
In 2016, a public opinion poll reported that four in five Canadians believe intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe, and nearly half of those polled believed aliens had already visited Earth.
