On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong stepped out of the Apollo Lunar Module and planted his left foot on the rocky Moon. With the first human foot on another world, he proclaimed, “That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.”
This was not only a big step for humanity – it was also a milestone for science, as astronauts on board the legendary Apollo 11 mission also carried with them a quartz glass laser reflector created by the world-renowned Argor Heraeus. Installed by Armstrong’s colleague Buzz Aldrin on Earth’s satellite, this reflector still serves to precisely determine the distance between the earth and the moon today.
50 years later, Argor Heraeus celebrates its special connection to the moon landing event with the release of a commemorative 2 gram gold bar. With its perfect combination of history, collectibility, and global investment appeal, now you too can own a valuable and lasting keepsake of that historic day. Add this extraordinary bar to your collection today!
On the obverse face of the bar, you’ll find the company logo. “Switzerland” and the bar’s weight, metal content, purity are inscribed below. The assayers mark and its unique, 6-digit serial number appear at the bottom.
The reverse features Neil Armstrong’s left footprint, the iconic image of the first “small step for man”, on the rocky surface of the moon.
Each Moon Landing anniversary gold bar is manufactured by Swiss refiner Argor-Heraeus, one of the oldest precious metals producers in the world. The company was first established as Argor SA Refinery in Switzerland in 1951, but adopted the name Argor-Heraeus in 1986 after forming a partnership between Swiss banking giant UBS and the Heraeus Group. Today, the conglomerate also includes the Austrian Mint and Commerzbank, a large German Bank which has a long-standing collaboration with the Mint. Argor-Heraeus continues to produce some of the most highly-invested Gold bullion products in the world today.
Your Argor 2 gram gold bar will arrive enclosed in a commemorative moon landing assay card signed by the chief assayer. The assay card authenticates gold purity and weight and helps protects the bar against damage. Orders over $199 are eligible for free shipping!
