In 1879, a celestial spectacle unfolded in the vast wilderness of Australia near Tenham Station, in western Queensland. Bright meteors streaked across the sky, their fiery trails carving a path from west to east, before shattering into countless extra-terrestrial fragments on the ground. In the aftermath, the precious cosmic stones were found scattered over a vast area.
This, the 19th edition in Coin Invest Trust's meteorite series, hits very close to home by commemorating an Australian meteor strike! Minted using CIT's trademark smartminting technique, the high relief design takes on a fun comic-book, almost Roy Lichtenstein style when considering this event. Plus, of course, a piece of genuine Tenham meteorite is included on the coin, as always!
