The astronauts who went to the moon achieved what many thought as impossible, but just like them--I am aiming for a moon shot of my own. My wife and I want to adopt a child to give a good home to.
Why buy this $1 Australia 2019-P 1 oz Silver Moon Landing?
On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong emerged from the lunar module on the Apollo 11 mission and became the first man ever to set foot on the surface of the moon. He was followed minutes later by Buzz Aldrin. 50 years after the accomplishment, which is recognized universally as one of the greatest in human history, the Perth Mint is commemorating the event with this one ounce silver coin. The coin bears the "P" mint mark of the Perth Mint, where it was struck from .9999 fine silver. It is part of a limited mintage of just 50,000 pieces that is now Sold Out at the Mint. This coin will arrive in GEM Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
Stunning Lunar Surface Design by Lucas Bowers
Jody Clark's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, which is new for 2019, features on the coin's obverse. Clark's portrait shows the monarch's shoulders open to the holder as she faces right wearing her Royal Diamond Diadem, the same crown that she wears to the State Opening of Parliament. Her effigy is encircled by a rim frame that bears five inscriptions, including her name, "ELIZABETH II," and "AUSTRALIA." The other inscriptions offer the coin's weight, purity, date, and face value.
The reverse design by Lucas Bowers features a single footprint on the lunar surface in the foreground. A few feet beyond the footprint is the lunar module, the vehicle that took Armstrong and Aldrin on the final part of their journey to the moon. "MOON LANDING 1969-2019" arches over the image along the rim.

In 1961, President John F. Kennedy challenged NASA to put a man on the moon by the end of the decade. The mission lasted eight days and landed not one, but two men, on the face of the moon. Here are some incredible, true facts about the mission.
