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."
