Sikhote-Alin 60 Year Anniversary Commemorative Coin No 129 of 300
2″ Zinc Alloy with Antique Silver Finish, this coin set was limited to a run of only 300.
Sikhote-Alin is one of the centerpieces in every collection. Having one of these coins displayed next to your meteorite specimen will add eye appeal, class and a sense of history to your collection.
The front of the coin bears the face of E.L. Krinov, the scientist who brought this meteorite to the world’s attention and mapped out the entire fall pattern area. (In the background is his diagram of the main mass breakup and fall pattern.)
The reverse shows the now famous painting by the artist named Medvedev, created from memory only moments after the fall. Inset on this side is a small piece of the Sikhote-Alin Meteorite.
This is a true collector piece which will become more valuable with the passage of time. It has been in our Personal Collection Sikhote-Alin Meteorite Display since 2007
This coin comes in a vinyl case (as seen in the left photo) and was removed with gloved hand only for the photographs
