Aliens became a modern folklore sensation during the Twentieth Century, particularly when rumors began to circulate in 1947 about a crashed UFO at Roswell, New Mexico. As the decades passed, the aliens of Roswell made appearances in rumors and conspiracy theories, written fiction, television, movies, and more: diminutive grey beings with vestigial facial features, enormous eyes, and a fondness for abducting people. Even President-to-be Jimmy Carter reported seeing a UFO, calling it the “darnedest thing I’ve ever seen.” Whether real or imagined, the mysterious alien and its UFO have become an iconic part of modern culture, and the Scottsdale Mint pays tribute to it with the 2022 1 oz Republic of Ghana Silver Alien Coin.

The world has seen more than one wave of UFO mania during the Twentieth Century, prompted by the rise of science fiction as a genre and the common trope of alien invaders that it often promoted. Orson Welles unwittingly touched off a panic with a 1938 radio broadcast of “War of the Worlds,” which some listeners mistook for a new broadcast. A mysterious crash near the town of Roswell touched off the rise of a whole subculture of UFO enthusiasts and conspiracy theorists in 1947. Most recently, a fresh outbreak of sightings, rumors, and off-the-record comments from mysterious figures took place in 2021.
The 2022 Republic of Ghana Silver Alien Coin commemorates the latest spike in public UFO enthusiasm with an elegant design struck in pure silver, its Brilliant Uncirculated grade that preserves its original-mint luster. It ships in a secure plastic capsule, with orders of 20 packaged in a mint tube, fully insured against loss or damage by JM Bullion.
The obverse side features an effigy of the late Queen Elizabeth II at its center, confirming the coin as legal tender. She’s surrounded by a futuristic decorative border and the inscriptions “REPUBLIC OF GHANA – 2022,” “FIVE CEDIS,” “1 TROY OUNCE” and “999 FINE SILVER.” The enigmatic face of an alien appears on the reverse, surrounded by another futuristic decorative border.
