• In 1967, Stefan Michalak was out searching for precious metals on May Long weekend near Falcon Lake in Whiteshell Provincial Park, in Manitoba, Canada, when he came upon a UFO sitting on the ground. It melted his glove when he touched it. When the UFO flew away, Michalak was thrown back to the ground from a blast of hot air or gas, leaving Michalak with third-degree burns on his chest in a grid-like pattern. (see photo image below)
• The Royal Canadian Mint has made a $20 coin to commemorate Michalak’s encounter, known as the Falcon Lake Incident. The coin (pictured above) is egg-shaped and features a bucolic image of Falcon Lake with Michalak in the foreground. When a black light is shined on the front of the coin it enhances the UFO and reveals a yellow light beaming down from it. (A black light flashlight comes with the coin.) The back of the coin depicts Queen Elizabeth. A total of 4,000 of these coins will be minted and cost collectors $129.95 each. (As of April 9th they were sold out.)
The Royal Canadian Mint is releasing the new $20 coin to commemorate the province’s most famous encounter with an unidentified flying object more than 50 years ago.
In 1967, Stefan Michalak was out searching for precious metals on May Long weekend near Falcon Lake in Whiteshell Provincial Park.
What he found wasn’t gold or silver, but something far more interesting.
The story goes that Michalak stumbled across the UFO during his excursion. Michalak reported burns after he touched the UFO, which melted the gloves he was wearing. When the UFO flew away, Michalak was thrown backward onto the ground from a blast of hot air or gas, leaving Michalak with third-degree burns on his chest in a grid-like pattern.
Michalak on his back and the UFO hovering over his body is the scene that is depicted on the front side of the coin.
