Make Space in Your Collection for This Titanium Apollo 13 Commemorative
Titanium has the highest strength-to-density ratio of any element on the planet. Because of this, striking coins in the metal is extremely difficult, with only a handful of mints even capable of minting titanium coins. This 2 Cedis legal-tender coin from Ghana is one of the very few titanium coins you can secure for your collection — and what a coin it is!
Minted in nearly a full ounce of 99.9% pure titanium, it pays tribute to the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 13 mission — NASA’s historic “successful failure” that was able to safely return the three-man crew of astronauts Jim Lovell, Jack Swigert and Fred Haise after a disastrous explosion aboard the Command Module rocked the vessel, signaling the end of a mission to the moon. This beautiful commemorative depicts the combined Command and Service Modules at the moment when the explosion occurred, turning the mission from a moon landing into one of survival.
This Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) coin also features a dazzling deep blue coloration within its inner ring to emphasize the vast sea of space surrounding the spacecraft and crew. Around the reverse are the inscriptions: “APOLLO 13 – NASA’S FINEST HOUR” at the top and “50th ANNIV. 1970 – 2020” along the bottom. The design is completed by Earth looming in the background with a small Apollo 13 Mission Logo superimposed at the right side of the coin over the Earth.
Just 1,970 of these coins have been authorized — one each for the year of this famous mission — and each coin available here will come in its original mint packaging. Add this unique limited-edition 2020 Ghana Titanium Apollo 13 Coin to your collection today!
