The Falcon Lake Incident is one of Canada’s most famous and well-documented UFO encounters! According to Stefan Michalak’s account, two glowing objects descended from the sky on May 20, 1967, near Falcon Lake, Manitoba. One landed close enough for him to approach. When the craft suddenly took flight, its emission set Michalak’s clothes ablaze, leaving him with mysterious burn marks… and an unique tale to tell. Your coin’s otherworldly shape is the perfect fit for this story. This colorful coin captures the imagination as it depicts the Falcon Lake Incident, with black light-activated features to add a glow to the craft and the blast that knocked Michalak to the ground! Black light flashlight included!

An UFO Story for the Ages
Around midday on May 20, 1967, amateur prospector Stefan (Stephen) Michalak was on the hunt for precious metals in Whiteshell Provincial Park when he suddenly noticed two strange objects in the sky. Both glowed with an intense red glare as they descended from the sky. One abruptly left the scene, but the other landed roughly 50 meters (160 feet) away from Michalak, who moved in to get a closer look.

The humming object was described as having a sulfurous smell. It appeared to be made from a stainless steel-like material. Peering into a brightly lit opening, Michalak heard muffled sounds and tried calling out to them, only to be met with silence. He touched the seamless sides of the craft, which melted the fingertips of his glove. When the UFO suddenly lifted off the ground, it emitted a blast of hot gas that knocked Michalak on his back, igniting his shirt and causing a grid-like pattern of third-degree burns to his chest.

What was the strange craft? Where did it come from? It’s a story that has more questions than answers. Michalak never claimed the craft was an alien one. Neither did he waver in his account of what he had seen and experienced that day, even under the scrutiny of doctors, scientists, law enforcement officials and other authorities, who could neither corroborate nor disprove his close encounter.

An Original Work of Art
Designed by artist Joel Kimmel, this UFO coin is based on Stefan Michalak’s account of what transpired on May 20, 1967, near Falcon Lake, Manitoba. A full palette of vibrant color re-creates the springtime hues of the place where Michalak saw two objects appear in the midday sky. Based on the witness’s descriptions and sketches, the oval-shaped UFO has a steel-like appearance as it hovers above him. Black light-activated features complete the story by mimicking the distinctive red glow described by Michalak, while adding a yellow hue to the blast of hot air that knocked the amateur prospector on his back and left him with mysterious burn marks.
