Description

The Flat Earth theory, widely debunked yet enduring, remains a captivating aspect of human skepticism. Historically challenged by Aristotle in the 4th century BCE through observations like ships disappearing hull-first over the horizon and the Earth’s round shadow during lunar eclipses, it faced modern revival with Samuel Shenton’s Flat Earth Society in 1956. Despite clear evidence from space exploration and satellite imagery, the theory attracts followers who distrust scientific authorities, often aligning with broader conspiracy beliefs about faked moon landings and global deceit. The Flat Earth coin series by République Gabonaise artistically represents this alternative worldview. The obverse features a high-relief depiction of the flat Earth’s rugged underside, while the reverse showcases a flat Earth map with continents spread across a plane and surrounded by an Antarctic ice wall. Limited to 999 pieces, this intricately designed coin is a valuable collector’s item, blending historical belief with exceptional craftsmanship.
