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 and glare as they descended from the sky; one abruptly left the scene, but the other landed roughly 50 metres away from Michalak, who moved in to get a closer look. The humming object was described as having a sulphurous smell, and 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 tips of his glove; and when the UFO suddenly lifted off the ground, it emitted a blast of hot air or 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? Its 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 the close encounter.

Designed by Pandora Young, your coin is an artist’s rendering of the Shag Harbour Incident. The colourful vertical image shows the well-known UFO encounter from a witness’ perspective, with a view from a fishing vessel off the southern coast of Nova Scotia. Three fishermen look up at the night sky, where black light technology adds a glow to the mysterious craft and its flashing lights as the object crashes into the Gulf of Maine. At first, no one referred to it as a UFO. Laurie Wickens, then 18, noticed the lights while driving with friends and estimated the craft to measure some 60 feet in diameter. But when it came crashing down into the sea, a flash of light and a roar led some witnesses to believe a plane crash had just occurred. Three RCMP officers, including one who had also seen the lights, arrived at the impact site to find the strange object glowing in the water less than a kilometre from the shore. Officials contacted the Rescue Coordination Centre in Halifax to find out if an aircraft had gone missingall were accounted for. Coast Guard and military vessels also arrived on the scene but they were already too late: the lights had already vanished and only the sparkling yellow foam remained on the surface. The search for a downed craft continued into the early morning hours but there was never any evidence of debris. A diving detachment of the Royal Canadian Navy also combed the seabed until the investigation was called off on October 9. What crashed in the water? Was it top-secret aircraft? Government documents show authorities could not offer a conventional explanation. Even today, the Shag Harbour Incident remains a mystery and one of the best-documented encounters with an unidentified flying object. Commercial pilots were the first to spot mysterious lights in the evening sky on October 4, 1967, as they approached Yarmouth, N. Sightings were also reported in Halifax. Seven witnesses (including Laurie Wickens) notified the RCMP about strange flashing lights or a possible plane crash. In fact, it was the authorities not the witnesses who first referred to the case as a UFO incident. Established in 2006, the Shag Harbour Incident Society is dedicated to chronicling the 1967 encounter. Visitors to the interpretive centre in Shag Harbour, N. Can learn more about the unexplained sighting through the permanent display of articles, memorabilia and videos.
