INSURED SHIPMENT / OWN COLLECTION

First coin of the series "Human Tragedies". The series depicts disasters that have shaken humanity.

The first coin depicts the Chernobyl catastrophe, which is described as the greatest disaster in the history of nuclear power and one of the greatest industrial disasters of the 20th century. 

The reverse of the coin depicts the mask of a liquidator, in which the scene of the cleaning of the area after the explosion is reflected. The high relief shows all the details. In addition to the exceptionally interesting design, the coin impresses with its addition. Selected parts of the coin glow in the dark! This alludes to people's ideas about the appearance of radioactive substances. At the bottom is the date of the reactor accident.

The obverse of the coin features the coat of arms of Niue, information on the denomination, the silver sample and the year of issue. In the background there is a characteristic ferris wheel - a symbol of the hurriedly abandoned Pripyat. The coin is packed in an elegant wooden box, together with a certificate of authenticity. The mintage is limited to 500 pieces only

 

ATTENTION! As of 1 March the price of the coin will increase to PLN 1699! Chernobyl-themed coins are selling out fast and increasing in value.

 

The catastrophe in the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant occurred on the night of 25-26 April 1986 in the nuclear reactor of the power unit no. 4. As a result of the accident, due to the overheating of the reactor core, a hydrogen explosion, fire and radioactive substances spread. The organisational and procedural causes were identified as a general lack of safety culture in the USSR, involving a failure to prioritise safety principles over other objectives. 

As a result of the total destruction of the reactor, an area of between 125 000 and 146 000 km² on the border of Belarus, Ukraine and Russia was radioactively contaminated and the radioactive cloud emitted from the damaged reactor spread across Europe. As a result of the contamination, more than 350 000 people were evacuated and resettled (mainly from Pripyat). After the disaster, for political reasons, the USSR mainly exposed the fault of the reactor operators. 

The reactor operators (the so-called liquidators) were unaware of the huge dose of radiation they were receiving.
