Why purchase this 2019 Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Solar Sail Silver GEM Proof coin?

The Swiss Mint has issued this stunning proof coin as a tribute to the 50th Anniversary of NASA's Apollo 11 lunar landing and Switzerland's contribution to the mission. Apollo 11 carried to the moon a Solar Sail developed physicists at the University of Bern, which was a 140 x 30 cm piece of aluminum foil coated to collect solar wind particles. Mintage of the 33 mm diameter 2019 Solar Sail Proof coin struck from .835 fine silver is limited to 5,000 coins.

Beautifully Detailed Lunar Scene by Swiss Mint Engraver Remo Mascherini

Astronaut Buzz Aldrin is featured on the reverse in the act of planting the solar sail in the moon's cratered surface. A stylized "50" hovers above, with a portion of the Lunar Lander "Eagle" in the background. Inscribed "1969" and "2019."

The Swiss cross emblem is located on the obverse above the coin's denomination of "20 FR," framed by the inscription "CONFEDERATIO HELVETICA" and "2019" in a staggered circular pattern.
