The moon landing stands as one of the most important achievements of mankind, in history. The 2019 Proof Australian Lunar Landing Two-Coin Silver and Cupro-Nickel Set celebrates the fact that the United States and Australia came together as international allies and partners to ensure that the very first images of man landing on the moon were able to be transmitted to over 500 million viewers around the world. With this set of coins, a joint effort between the United States Mint and the Royal Australian Mint, a once-in-a-lifetime set of coins was born. The 10,000 limited mintage means that this coin set is in high demand amongst investors and collectors both.
The Royal Australian Mint and the United States Mint teamed up to present these 2-coin sets as a symbol of the cooperation that took place between the two nations when images of the lunar landing were broadcast. Each of the coins are individually encapsulated for their protection, and are housed together in a presentation case. The set includes a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
The obverse of each of the coins in the 2019 Proof Australian Lunar Landing Two-Coin Silver and Cupro-Nickel Set is different. The United States coin features the footprint made by an astronaut on the moons surface. The words Mercury Gemini and Apollo are engraved above the footprint.
The Australian coin features the 1998 effigy of Queen Elizabeth IIs effigy as designed by Ian Rank-Broadley. Also included is the Parkes radio telescope that Australian technicians made use of in order to collect and transmit the TV broadcast from the moon to strategic broadcast points around the globe.
The reverse of the 2019 Proof Australian Lunar Landing Two-Coin Silver and Cupro-Nickel Set features a different design for each coin in the set. The reverse of the US coin features the famous photo snapped by Buzz Aldrin as he stood on the moon and captured in the reflection of his own visor an image of Neil Armstrong and the Eagle lunar lander.
The reverse of the Australian coin features the image of an astronaut standing on the moon with a colorized image of the Earth in the background.
The 2019 Proof Australian Lunar Landing Two-Coin Silver and Cupro-Nickel Set is highly valued amongst collectors, particularly those with an appreciation for space travel and the moon landing.
