PCGS - Since early times, reports of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) in the sky have been recorded and disputed. Claims range from the Roman Republican historian Titus Livy (Livy) saying "navium speciem de caelo adfulsisse" (phantom ships had been seen gleaming in the sky) in the winter of 218 BCE to the United States Pentagon admitting a UFO program still exists in 2020 and releasing film of such incidents. Yet, for all the believers and unbelievers, only Canada has released a coin commemorating an unexplained phenomena event reportedly involving a UFO within its own country.


Canada 2018 $20, Falcon Lake Incident, PCGS PR70DCAM

Several versions of a story describing an event at Falcon Lake, Manitoba, on May 20, 1967 have been told and retold - written and rewritten - by believers, skeptics, and entertainers all adding their own details to tell the tale. We boil down the story from these sources and with quotes from Stefan Michalak, a Polish immigrant who was prospecting by Falcon Lake when he claims the incident happened.

He was distracted from his amateur geology when a flock of geese from the pond below the area he was prospecting started making noise. Looking up, he noticed what he described as "two cigarette-shaped things with humps in the middle" floating in the air. One stayed aloft as the other came down and landed on the rocks. Michalak approached the craft looking for markings, such as those from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), to identify it believing it to be an experimental aircraft of some type. However, no marks were observed. Contemporary to the incident, Michalak sketched the craft and described the skin of the craft as flawless steel. After a few minutes, the door of the craft opened and, hearing noise and possible voices, Michalak approached the UFO believing that help was possibly needed.

"Yankee boys, if you're in trouble I will help you," shouted Michalak in English, as he approached the craft. With no response in English, Michalak tried speaking Russian, Polish, and German to see if he could elicit a reply from anyone inside the vehicle. The light emanating from the open door of the craft was so bright as he approached, he had to lower the shades on the welding goggles he wore for protecting his eyes while prospecting. Michalak reached up and touched the craft with his gloved hand and it burned through the fingertips of the glove. The craft started to rotate in a counterclockwise motion. A blast of air or gas from the vehicle knocked Michalak back and ignited his shirt on fire in the process. The UFO lifted itself into the air and vanished.

With the UFO now gone, Michalak decided it was time to leave. He checked his compass to find his way back to the road but found it going haywire. Taking his best guess at the direction, Michalak, now distorted and badly burned, was seeing spots and fell ill. Eventually making his way back home and to the hospital, Michalak was treated for severe, circular-shaped burns and other symptoms. Radiation tests came back negative. He was soon released from the hospital.

Oh that I was where I would be,
Then I would be where I am not,
Here I am where I must be,
Go where I would, I can not.

Looks like the French beat the RCM to the punch in the 1680's.

It's not the only one, there are others, some even earlier dated.
