This Limited Edition Coin is unique and
one of a kind, just like the man it commemorates. On the
front of this coin is Ky Michaelson holding the rocket
capsule he launched into space moments earlier, the first
civilian in history to ever accomplish this. On the back
side you see Ky as a young boy holding a rocket in his
hand and a dream in his heart. “If You Can Dream
It- You Can Do It” is the mindset that his boy had
in place as he moved forward to reach for and achieve
his dreams. This coin is a fitting way to commemorate
a man that has inspired young and old alike all over the
world, and continues to do so by reminding us that nothing
The Rocketbelt Society is proud to issue
this COA verifying that this coin is one of the 1,000
Limited Edition Coins to be minted. I personally guarantee
that only 1,000 coins have been minted, and I am honored
to present you with this valued Ky Michaelson Commemorative
If you want to talk about humanity’s limitations—about
what we can’t imagine, can’t create, can’t
solve—don’t call Ky Michaelson. He won’t
understand what you’re saying. Michaelson doesn’t
trade in impossibility. If that word has any meaning at
all to the Minnesota-born inventor and rocketeer, it simply
indicates something that hasn’t been done yet. And
doing what hasn’t been done is a Michaelson specialty.
How else could a man set dozens of national and international
speed records, create mind-blowing stunts that changed the
look of Hollywood films, and lead the first private team
of rocketeers to send a rocket into space?
Dar Robinson, one of the most revered stuntmen of the 20th
Century, called Michaelson an “imagineer.” Rather
than start with physical rules and limits and what others
have done before, Michaelson begins with the goal, then
builds in his mind the machine required to achieve it. Sure,
he relies on science. It’s been his passion since
grade school. But while most scientists will delve into
the literature, Michaelson came to school at a disadvantage. Like to know more? Click Here!
