Pobjoy Mint is joining in the celebration of one of mankind's greatest achievements with this Man on the Moon Proof. The coin is perfect for collectors who are interested in space exploration, as well as those looking for inspiration and patriotic Americans looking to mark the 50th anniversary of one of America's greatest Cold War victories. This coin is part of a mintage of just 5,000 pieces. It was struck from 2 oz of .999 fine silver.

Stunning Moon Landing Design

The coin's obverse features a right-side portrait of reigning British monarch Queen Elizabeth II wearing her Royal Diamond Diadem. Her name, "ELIZABETH II," is inscribed along the rim, as are "2019" and "ASCENSION ISLAND."

On the reverse, Neil Armstrong stands on the moon saluting the American flag. The lunar module stands in the background, while the earth is visible in space. Armstrong's famous quote from when he took his first step on the moon, "THAT'S ONE SMALL STEP FOR MAN, ONE GIANT LEAP FOR MANKIND," is inscribed along the rim between the anniversary dates, "1969" and "2019."

Nearly Perfect PF69 UC FDI with Black Core Holder and Astronaut Footprint Label

This coin appears flawless to the naked eye according to the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), who awarded it their second highest grade, Proof 69. This piece also received Ultra Cameo certification thanks to its sharp contrasts between heavily frosted devices and deeply mirrored fields and First Day of Issue certification, an exclusive designation awarded only to pieces that were submitted through an exclusive process. This information comes on a label that bears an astronaut footprint, and the coin has been set in a sleek black core.
