Putting a man on the moon was one of the most important – if not the most important – American achievements in the last fifty years. Not only did it serve to show the world, and especially Russia, our strength, determination and ambition, but it also proved us to be a technological leader. In fact, to date we are the only country on Earth that has ever been able to accomplish this! For the 50th anniversary of this milestone achievement we have assembled a collection of coins to honor our courage and technical prowess. Each collection contains five coins and includes:
“The 50th Anniversary Moon Landing” – The obverse features an astronaut with the landing module on the surface of the moon, with a brilliant full-color Earth and “50” in the background.
“The Apollo 11 Crew Coin” – Magnificently sculpted portraits of Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins grace the obverse as they appeared in their NASA photos, a full-color moon rising in the background.
“The Race to the Moon Coin” – A full-color Saturn V blasts off into space, the Earth falling away behind it.
“The Tranquility Base Coin” – This coin truly showcases the engraver’s art, as a meticulously sculpted image of the Landing Module sits on the surface of the moon, a full color Earth behind it, along with the command module in orbit.
“The World Watches Coin” – The traditional American Family – mom, dad and the kids – huddle around their old black and white set as the image of Armstrong on the moon fills them with a sense of pride at our accomplishment. An estimated 530 million people worldwide watched the landing live, the largest television audience for a live broadcast at that time.
Each coin in this collection is a non-circulating legal tender coin half-dollar of the Solomon Islands and has been clad in pure silver then richly enhanced in brilliant color. Each set comes with a deluxe display case and Certificate of Authenticity. Don’t wait order now while we have them available!
