This beautiful gold coin celebrates the 50th anniversary of mankinds first landing on the moon. The successful landing of United States spacecraft Apollo 11s Lunar Module Eagle on the Moon was watched by more than half a billion people in 1969. Humanity collectively held its breath as astronaut Neil Armstrong stepped onto the Moons surface, proclaiming, Thats one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind.
The pulse of humanity rose as Apollo 11 was launched on 16 July 1969. An estimated 600 million people across the world watched on TV thanks in part to Australias CSIRO Parkes radio telescope and NASAs Honeysuckle Creek tracking station near Canberra as it made its successful flight to the Moon. The 1969 achievement of the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration, or NASA, paved the way for continued development of advanced technology to explore Earth, the Moon, other planets and the distant reaches of space.
Each coins reverse portrays a representation of the Lunar Module Eagle landing on the Moon behind a large footprint on the Moons surface. The design includes the inscription MOON LANDING 1969-2019. Each coins obverse depicts the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.
The 1oz gold coin is housed in a classic display case with a wooden lid. Each coin is packaged within an illustrated shipper and accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
