Why order this Silver Proof 2019 Ascension Island First Man on the Moon?

Share in the celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of man's first walk on the moon with this Silver Proof from the Pobjoy Mint. The coin is part of a mintage of 5,000 pieces, each of which was struck at the Pobjoy Mint from 28.28 g of sterling, or .925 fine, silver. The coin is perfect for any collector with an interest in space exploration.

Powerful Astronaut Design

The obverse features a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II that is exclusive to the Pobjoy Mint. It shows her in right-side profile wearing a necklace and her Royal Diamond Diadem, the same crown that she wore at her coronation. Rim inscriptions include her name, "ELIZABETH II," the date, "2019," and the issuing territory, "ASCENSION ISLAND."

On the reverse, an astronaut faces the holder while saluting from the lunar surface. The flag that Neil Armstrong planted on the moon is next to him, and the lunar module is behind him. The earth is in the distance, and the NASA logo is to the right. The anniversary dates, "1969" and "2019," are split by Neil Armstrong's famous first words on the moon, "ONE SMALL STEP FOR MAN, ONE GIANT LEAP FOR MANKIND."

Impeccable PF70 UC FDI

This coin earned a perfect Proof 70 grade from the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). That means that it is flawless as seen under 5x magnification. NGC also credited the coin with having deeply mirrored fields and heavily frosted devices by certifying it Ultra Cameo and indicated that it was submitted for grading through an exclusive process by labeling it First Day of Issue.
