Coin Story

Moldavite, a natural bottle-green glass, originated from a high-pressure modification of quartz, which was caused by the impact of a meteorite in Bavaria 15 million years ago. Upon hitting the earth the meteorite, which had a diameter of 1500 m, had reached a speed of 70’000 km/h, through which the discovery site, also known as grit-fields, is spread over a radius of 400 km. Moldavite is named after one of the most significant locations where it is found – near the Moldava River in the territory of today’s Czech Republic.

Reverse Design

The reverse captures the green Moldavite meteorite. The coin looks like the meteorite just hit it, leaving a crater. There is also an original piece of the meteorite included in the reverse of the coin.

Obverse Design

Each coin features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the denomination of the coin.

Packaging

The Moldavite Impact Meteorite coin comes in a presentation case with the Certificate of Authenticity.
