"It was an incredible amount of fun designing this coin and telling the story of pre and post impact of the Pingauluit Crater. I hope this coin will have a similar impact!"

One of the world's deepest crater lakes, Pingualuit Crater Lake is stunning and truly unique because of its perfect circular shape, its deep blue colour, and its steep crater rim that stands out significantly over the flat tundra landscape. This site has caught the attention and imagination of scientists because the lake’s origins are extraterrestrial, and because its waters are among the purest in the world; fed only by rain, the lake basically emulates a huge rainwater collector in the middle of the barren tundra! But the real treasure is the wealth of stories its deep waters and sediments can tell. Deciphering the 1.4-million-year history of natural climate variability from the Pingualuit Crater Lake sediment archives will reveal important clues about climate change and how ecosystems adapted over many glacial-interglacial age cycles—in essence, Pingualuit Crater Lake is a precious scientific time capsule.

The weather was perfect, enough wind to keep the mosquitoes away when I first saw the crater and marvelled at the beauty of its deep blue colours. I put my feet in to really feel it’s beauty
