Patrick Belanger, Artist

“I clearly remember that night, when the whole family was watching a news story about an unidentified object in the Montréal sky, and it totally captured my attention. This coin design gave me an opportunity to marvel and recreate the energy I felt that evening, and it has rekindled my childhood fascination with UFOs.”

“This is my second project within the Canada’s Unexplained Phenomena series and I can truly say that these coins are among my favourites! The stories are mysterious and intriguing, and they will open your mind to the possibility that UFOs exist.”

Chris Rutkowski, Science Writer

“The Place Bonaventure UFO was seen by dozens of witnesses as it seemed to hover over the hotel’s rooftop pool. Guests alerted hotel staff, including a security guard, who in turn called a newspaper reporter, all of whom said they watched the stationary object hanging in the sky, displaying an odd “clocklike” pattern of lights. Photos taken that night remain hotly disputed as to what they depict: A reflection of underwater pool lights? Spotlights on a nearby skyscraper? Northern Lights? Even RCMP were mystified that night, and the incident is still regarded today as one of Canada’s most curious UFO cases.”

Stan Witten, Senior Engraver

“This was a fun design to model since I stayed at this hotel a few years after the Montréal Incident. Given the three-quarter perspective, I thought it would be wise to create concentric ovals radiating from the UFO and a Fresnel lens effect for the six beams of light—this helps reflect the light in a unique way. For the colour application, the challenge was to align the paint files with the many straight, hard lines in the design—buildings, windows, steps, pool deck and swimming pool—and this made for an interesting effect as the light beams can also be seen on the pool surface.”
