More info

A meteorite is a solid piece of debris from an object, such as a comet, asteroid, or meteoroid, that originates in outer space and survives its passage through the Earth's atmosphere and impact with the Earth's surface or that of another planet. When the object enters the atmosphere, various factors like friction, pressure, and chemical interactions with the atmospheric gases cause it to heat up and radiate that energy. It then becomes a meteor and forms a fireball, also known as a shooting star or falling star; astronomers call the brightest examples “bolides”. Meteorites that survive atmospheric entry and impact vary greatly in size. For geologists, a bolide is a meteorite large enough to create a crater.


The reverse of the coin depicts the stunning replica of the impact crater of the Chergach Meteorite. The beautiful gilded finish reminds of the Sahara Desert and the hole in the middle gives an overall realistic look to the coin. On the bottom of the reverse, the inscription: “CHERGACH METEORITE” – the name of the coin. The obverse of the coin features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the inscriptions: “ELIZABETH II” – the name of the Queen, “COOK ISLANDS” – the issuing country, “2017” – the year of issue and “2 DOLLARS” – the face value.
