The successful landing of American spacecraft Apollo 11’s Lunar Module Eagle on the Moon was watched by more than half a billion people in 1969. The historic event was broadcast thanks in part to Australia’s CSIRO Parkes radio telescope and NASA’s Honeysuckle Creek tracking station near Canberra. Humanity collectively held its breath as astronaut Neil Armstrong stepped onto the Moon’s surface, proclaiming, “That’s one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind”.

The 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.

Struck upon an extra-deep blank to accommodate its exquisitely detailed high relief design, this remarkable 5oz coin captures 50 years of mankind’s fascination with the first moonwalk.

Moon Surface Design

The coin’s reverse portrays a representation of the Lunar Module Eagle landing on the Moon behind a large footprint on the Moon’s surface. The design includes the inscription ‘MOON LANDING 1969-2019’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

Presentation Case and Numbered Certificate

The coin is housed in a classic display case with a clear lid. Packaged within an illustrated shipper, each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
