Coins have a long history as a collectible, one far older than that of meteorites. Stories of the famed emperor Augustus collecting and gifting old and foreign coins appear in Suetonius’s De vita Caesarum, which was published in 121 AD. Modern coin collecting centers around a variety of approaches, including historical, artistic, topical, and economic. 

In 2004, Liberia made history as the first country to authorize the issue of a legal tender coin; a silver coin embedded with a piece of the NWA 267 meteorite. Multiple countries have followed suit, and meteorite collectors can now also add artistic commemorative coins, such as this, to their collections. 

An affordable alternative to silver coins, this coin depicting the famously massive Hoba meteorite is made of stainless steel.
