The Meteorite Art series continues with the fourth issue dedicated to one of the largest meteorites in the world. This impressive coin features a real piece of Campo del Cielo meteorite, embedded into a high relief reverse with a detailed image of a crater. Campo del Cielo or “The Field of Heaven” is an impact site of eponymous meteorite which crashed into the Earth’s surface 4000 – 5000 years ago. This catastrophic event was probably witnessed by local tribes, leaving its trace in their legends. The strewn field of meteorite debris covered an area of 60 km meaning that the cosmic body exploded in atmosphere and shattered to thousands of pieces.
