We at STL Mint are proud to unveil our sixth and final release in the inaugural Ancient Aliens Series: Operation SR-71!

The Lockheed SR-71, code-named “Blackbird”, was built by the United States Air Force in the early 1960’s, and was extensively tested at Area 51 prior to it’s first mission in Dec 1964. The SR-71 was a strategic reconnaissance aircraft designed to fly at speeds in excess of Mach 3 and at altitudes exceeding 85,000 ft. It’s still the world’s fastest aircraft ever built with a documented speed of 2,193 mph (3,530 km/h.). With the SR-71 Blackbird seemingly coming out out of nowhere during one of the most important times in our history begs the question…how did we engineer such a groundbreaking aircraft that even 54 years later cannot be topped? There is only one logical explanation…we clearly had some extraterrestrial assistance!

Mintage will be capped at 250 bars total: 100 prooflike, 100 colored enameled, and 50 Special Edition glittered enamel. The Special Edition will feature glittered enamel and have a special serial number convention (SE01-SE50). Each bar will be individually numbered and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. Act now as these won’t last long. Our next series is currently in the works and will be released soon.

SPECIAL EDITION: Limit 2 per collector and can only be purchased in addition to another bar! If you attempt to purchase only an SE, your order will be cancelled immediately! 

NOTE: These will be shipped in mint sealed plastic – if you prefer an air-tite capsule, please add this to your order. Please keep in mind that the enameled bars have an acrylic coating over the enamel that sometimes prevents the capsule from sealing completely. Every issue may contain SAMPLE bars in addition to the production mintage – those are always disclosed on the “Mintage Info” page and SAC.
