On July 20, 1969, millions of people across the globe gathered around their television to watch something that had never been done before. American astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin became the first humans ever to land on the moon. About six-and-a-half hours later, Armstrong became the first person to walk on the moon. This spectacular limited edition commemorative set is an enduring tribute to the magnificent desolation that started with one small step for man but resulted in one giant leap for mankind.

21-carat Gold Coin

Obverse: The obverse design depicts a footprint on the lunar surface with the inscriptions “MERCURY”, “GEMINI”, and “APOLLO”, which together represent the efforts of the United States space program leading up to the first manned Moon Landing. Due to the vacuum on the moon, there footprint remains there to this day.

Reverse: The reverse design depicts a representation of a close of the famous ‘Buzz Aldrin on the Moon’ photograph taken on July 20, 1969. It shows the visor and part of the helmet of Buzz Aldrin. The reflection in Buzz Aldrin’s helmet includes astronaut Neil Armstrong, the United States flag, and the lunar lander.

24-carat Pure Gold Ingot

Featuring a reinterpretation of the famous image of Neil Armstrong putting the American flag on the moon next to the dates “1969 – 2019”.
