Product Details
Are we really alone? Is there anybody out there? And if so, are we already being observed by them? Extraterrestrial Life, the 2022 edition of the Silver Niobium coin, asks these eternal questions.

Coin Highlights:
  • Contains .2604 oz of Silver.
  • Comes encapsulated and boxed with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
  • Mintage of 65,000 coins.
  • Obverse: The violet niobium core on the coin’s obverse is dominated by an alien holding the Earth in its hands like a plaything. The Silver outer ring contains the famous Drake equation, which is aimed at calculating the probability of extraterrestrial life. Alongside it is a representation of the James Webb Space Telescope.
  • Reverse: In the niobium core on the coin’s reverse, some of the factors that could favor life on other planets are represented: carbon dioxide, methane, oxygen, vegetation and water. In the outer Silver ring, the Webb is shown capturing an exoplanet passing in front of a star.

Given that we only know a tiny part of the universe which comprises some 100 billion galaxies, each with 100 billion stars, it is hardly surprising that we continue to ask questions. Is all life in the universe really limited to our tiny "third rock from the sun?" The James Webb Space Telescope is designed to help us find out. The largest, most powerful and complex space telescope ever built and launched into space, it will fundamentally alter our understanding of the universe. The telescope’s improved wavelength coverage and greater sensitivity compared with its predecessor, the Hubble, will enable the Webb to look much closer to the beginning of time, when the first stars and galaxies started to form.

What do we expect it to find? If the Webb were to detect mere bacteria or algae, it would be a scientific sensation of epic proportions, though a very long way from the discovery of an alien civilization. We may have to continue waiting for something as momentous as that. But in the meantime, maybe one day visitors from another galaxy will drop in to say hello. But if they do, they will have to be from a civilization even more technologically advanced than the Webb telescope.
