Please note: The meteorite may tarnish quickly if exposed to moisture. Always keep your coin in the original capsule to slow the speed of tarnishing.

Special Features:
• Your very own meteorite. The reverse includes a guaranteed authentic meteorite fragment! Sourced from the Campo del Cielo meteorite field, the fragment likely made impact some 4,500 years
ago, but it was originally part of an iron mass that is likely billions of years old. It’s an opportunity to own an extra• terrestrial piece of our solar system • one that is potentially as old as Earth itself!
• Celebrating Canada’s scientific spirit. A special 150th anniversary celebration of The Royal Astronomical Society of Canada! Through the contributions of its 5,000 members, Canada’s leading association of amateur and professional astronomers remains dedicated to the advancement of astronomy and related sciences.
• A Royal Canadian Mint FIRST. An exceptionally unique space scene that is rarely seen on RCM coins. Enhanced by engraved textural details, the full colour image is a realistic take on the RASC’s symbolic logo for its sesquicentennial year.
• Each coin is unique. Since no two pieces of meteorite are alike, no two coins are alike either!
• A limited collectible with high visual appeal. The stunning design is sure to resonate with all who share a passion for astronomy!

Maroon clamshell with black beauty box.
