More info

Upheaval
Upheaval Dome is an impact structure, the deeply eroded bottom-most remnants of an impact crater, in Canyonlands National Park southwest of the city of Moab, Utah, in the United States. The crater is located in the Island in the Sky section of the park, and is approximately 42 miles (67 km) by vehicle from Moab. It is approximately 5 km in diameter and the crater is known to be less than 170 million years old (Jurassic or younger, but how much younger is not established.) The crater is clearly visible on the surface as bright brown and black concentric rings. Stratigraphically, the oldest formation exposed in the center of the dome is the Permian Organ Rock Shale. This is overlain by the Permian White Rim Sandstone. Both are sometimes considered part of the Cutler Formation. Overlying these are the Triassic Moenkopi Formation (which is bounded top and bottom by unconformities), the Chinle Formation, the cliff-forming Wingate Sandstone, the Kayenta Formation, and the crossbedded Triassic-Jurassic Navajo Sandstone.

 
Design

The reverse of the coin depicts the incredible Upheaval crater, with it’s beautiful meteorite insert, makes it seem that the impact just happened in this miniature version. On the top of the coin, the inscriptions: “METEORITE CRATER” – the name of the series and “UPHEAVAL DOME” – the name of the coin. The obverse of the coin depicts the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. On top of the rim, the inscriptions: “NIUE ISLAND” – the issue country and “2019” – the year of issue. All around the effigy, the inscriptions: “ELIZABETH II” – the name of the Queen, “ONE DOLLAR” – the face value and “Ag 999” – the fineness of the Silver.
