The 2019 edition of this series (already the 15th issue) is dedicated to Estacado, a 290 kg (640 pounds) meteorite which was found in 1883 in Hale County, Texas. Have a look at the details of that special shaped coin. The break through and an original piece of this meteorite create an amazing dynamic visualization. You can almost feel the power of the impact when Estacado hit the earth.
For the FIRST-TIME-EVER, CIT has struck this amazing coin out of a special Titanium and Silver alloy which gives an out of this world look! It is also the largest of the series and measures an impressive 50 mm in diameter without increasing the weight of just ½ oz.
The obverse shows a picture of the Big Bend National Park with the shiny Rio Grande river. The reverse features a star dust finish that represents space along with a colorized image of Earth. Get yourself a piece of the extraterrestrial meteorite embedded in a unique and exceptional coin. This titanium silver .925 coin is limited to 2500 pieces and features a silk finish.
