Genesis Block (genesis block) is a zero block in the blockchain, each crypto currency starts to be extracted from the genesis block.
Bitcoin genesis block stores the record of its creator Satoshi Nakamoto. Together with the usual data there is a message:
"The Times 03 / Jan / 2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks"
Thus Nakamoto confirms that the first block of bitcoin was recorded in the blockchain no earlier than this date, since this is the title of the article from the front page of the British newspaper The Times of January 3, 2009. But also many see this message as a deep meaning, because bitcoin intends to replace an inefficient banking system.
For now 03.01.2009 issue of The Times is a some kind of "Collectors Edition". You can find offers for it at forums and marketplaces. Basically it comes together with "Certificate of Authenticity".
Probably it is a good investment )))
