The coin set issue is related to the 2012 phenomenon comprises a range of beliefs according to which cataclysmicor transformative events will occur on 21 December 2012. This date is regarded by some predictions as the final event of history, the ultimate destiny of humanity - commonly referred to as the "end of the world" or "end time". The 21st of December 2012 is the final date of a 5,125-year-long cycle in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar. Various astronomical alignments and numerological formulae have been proposed as pertaining to this date, though none have been accepted by astronomers or other scientists.
The "Apocalypse" coin set issue represents an optimistic, New Age interpretation of this end-date which means that this date marks the start of time in which Earth and its inhabitants may undergo a positive physical or spiritual transformation, and that 2012 marks a BEGINING of a NEW ERA (as opposition to the end of the human civilization).
