2019 Austria Silver 50th Anniversary Moon Landing Domed Proof NGC PF70UC First Releases w/Black Core & Austria Label
One Small Step for Coins, One Giant Leap for Numismatics
July 1969 signaled a massive change for humanity. For the first time in all of history, a man walked among the stars and set new heights for everyone. The event was so tremendous that people the whole world over celebrate this accomplishment to this day. One nation that is commemorating this momentous moment is Austria with this sensational 50th anniversary proof that pays tribute to the Apollo 11 moon landing – and did they ever put their all into it!
Struck in 15.56 grams of 92.5% Sterling silver, this legal-tender €20 coin features the ingenuous use of a unique domed shape to mimic the spherical nature of the moon. The design shows the lunar landing module Eagle floating just above an astronaut while a fully colorized Earth shimmers in the background. Dotting the sky are many glittering stars that actually glow in the dark! The coin’s reverse completes your journey to the moon by showing a crater-pocked lunar surface with the inscriptions ERSTE MONLANDUNG, 21 JULI 1969 and APOLLO 11. Just above the Apollo 11 inscription is a crosshair that pinpoints where the Eagle landed and Armstrong took his first historic step.
