Why buy this Silver Proof 2019 1 Crown Ascension Island First Man on the Moon?

In 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, with the help of Michael Collins and a team of people back on Earth, made history by becoming the first men to walk on the moon. Now, Pobjoy Mint is celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of that seminal accomplishment with this Silver Proof Man on the Moon. The coin was struck on a 28.28 g planchet of .925 fine, or sterling, silver and is part of a mintage of just 5,000 pieces. It will arrive in GEM Proof condition. These coins are sure to go quickly and to be treasured by exploration enthusiasts for decades to come.

Stunning Man on the Moon Design

A portrait of Queen Elizabeth II that is exclusive to the Pobjoy Mint serves as the obverse design. The monarch is shown in right-side profile wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem that she wore at her coronation, earrings, and a necklace. Her name, "ELIZABETH II," joins "2019" and "ASCENSION ISLAND" on the rim.

The American flag stands on the lunar surface at the center of the design, a symbol of America's major victory in the space race. To the left, an astronaut salutes facing the holder, and to the left is the lunar module. The earth is far off in the distance above, and the NASA logo is in the upper right. The coin's face value, "ONE CROWN," is inscribed at the bottom, while the anniversary dates are split by Neil Armstrong's most famous quote from the moon. Together, they read, "1969 - ONE SMALL STEP FOR MAN, ONE GIANT LEAP FOR MANKIND - 2019."
