World's First! 1oz Pure Silver UFO Shaped Coin
After the technological breakthroughs in rocketry during WWII, the eyes of many were pointed to the sky in search of unidentified flying objects (UFO's). There were so many sightings that the US Air Force launched a series of formal investigations beginning with Project Sign in 1948 and culminating in the largest ever government investigation of UFO's, Project Blue Book, which ended in 1969. 50 years later, people around the world are still captivated by the possibility of extraterrestrial life-forms visiting Earth.
