A 17th century French token has UFO hunters claiming 'absolute proof' of UFO sightings hundreds of years ago. The ancient jeton, a coin-like object used for counting, depicts an unusual circular entity that looks remarkably like a flying saucer.

Some have even argued that this represents the Biblical Ezekiel's wheel, which they claim is the Bible's own tale of a UFO encounter. A 17th century French token has UFO hunters claiming 'absolute proof' of UFO sightings hundreds of years ago. The ancient jeton, a coin-like object used for counting, depicts an unusual circular entity that bears semblance to a flying saucer.

. Skeptics over the years have offered a slew of possible explanations, arguing that it looks like a drifting mushroom or flower, or even a shield. The story tells of a vision in which four beings emerge, each accompanied by a wheel. The wheels are gyroscopic, each like a wheel intersecting another wheel.

When the winged beings rise into the sky, the wheels rise as well, or move in any direction to match them. The perplexing object has spurred theories dating back decades, brought to life again by its recent mention on UFO Sightings Daily.

Scott C. Waring, editor of UFO Sightings Daily, speculates that the token is proof of UFO sightings so frequent in ancient France that they were inscribed on coins.

'I've been looking for one of these off and on for a few weeks. It looks really amazing and is absolute proof that in the 1600s the French witnessed enough UFO sightings to decide to put some of what they saw on coins,' writes Waring.

'This is a French jeton minted somewhere between 1856 to 1680, a coin-like educational tool that was commonly used to help people count money, or sometimes used as a money substitute for playing games.

'It is about the size of a U.S. quarter-dollar and similar to thousands of other jetons with different religious and educational designs that were produced and used in Europe during the 16th and 17th centuries.
