Ufologists carefully look through various ancient artifacts, works of art and even everyday objects in search of any hints of alien images. Recently, a curious French coin has attracted particular interest.
The concrete coin was minted in 1656-1680. The first to call the UFO bell was the well-known ufologist and editor of the site about aliens and conspiracy theories Scott Waring. He carefully studied the images on the coin and reported that the French had witnessed UFO arrivals in the past.
Such coins were widely used at that time as a method of settlement between merchants and royal officials. They were also called “counters” or “tokens” and used in complex calculations.
The image shows people at the table during the calculations, where special coin counters were used.
On his website, Waring Scott described the coin:
“It resembles the American quarter in size and looks like other coins created in Europe in the 16-17 centuries. Usually various religious symbols were minted on their surface. But here they decided to display the case of the arrival of a UFO (the object resembles the wheel of the Prophet Ezekiel) ”.
In this respect, the Latin inscription OPPORTUNUS ADEST seems to be interesting, which translates as “It happens at the right time”.
Two sides of the coin. One shows a circular object in the sky, and the second shows plants and rain.
In the theory of paleokontakt the legend of the wheel of Ezekiel is considered one of the hints on the description of UFOs in the Bible. One of the passages says that “the wheels glittered like a chrysolite, and all four looked the same”.
However, representatives of the Chicago Coin Club are confident that the coin has nothing to do with UFOs:
“In the Middle Ages, coins were always decorated with religious themes. However, in the 16th century, coins were used to spread various political messages and glorify a particular ruler. That is, tokens served only as a propaganda method ”.

Many experts claim that a round object can only be an image of a shield with arrows, a flower or some kind of mushroom (after all, on the reverse side there is a plant theme).
The 1648 coin shows a similar rounded object.
Coin experts assure that each image on a token has its own purpose. However, they are convinced that there is no reference to the observation of UFOs or aliens. Scott Waring, of course, does not agree with them, so he continues to seek confirmation of his own theory.
