Icon Coins Announces The Roswell Incident as its Next Limited Edition Collectible
IconCoins.com announced today that it will be releasing a limited edition collectors coin on May 20th, 2017 in honor of the 70th anniversary of The Roswell Incident. An icon in popular culture, The Roswell Incident has been the subject of various conspiracy theories, literature, television and film productions, and scientific debate since July, 1947 when a local rancher reported a crash on his land. While official word claims a simple weather balloon crashed in Roswell, New Mexico, witness accounts tell a very different story of out-of-this-world technology, extra-terrestrial beings, and a massive conspiracy & cover-up.
“The Roswell Incident fits in perfectly with what we do here at Icon Coins and it’s a perfect candidate for a high quality collectible.” said Ralph Asbury, lead designer and founder of Icon Coins. “There are so many different facets to The Roswell Incident and that’s why it has become such a phenomenon in popular culture.”
Design and Inspiration
The Roswell Incident Limited Edition Collectors Coin is not only inspired by the incident itself, but also by society’s enormous interest is extra-terrestrial life, space exploration, and very idea of whether or not we are alone in the universe. The design of the coin was inspired by the Pioneer Plaques and the Voyager Gold Records compiled by Carl Sagan as the first physical messages sent into space in the 1970s. In similar presentation, The Roswell Incident coin depicts various aspects of the incident including a classic alien face, crash site indicator, hieroglyphics found on some of the debris, a crashed flying saucer, and more.

The coin is strictly limited to 500 coins worldwide. Each coin includes a signed and numbered Certificate of Authenticity and an alien grey velvet coin pouch.
