The Royal Australian Mint is celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission with a proof coin set, I was so excited to see them that I brought both of the sets for prosperity and remembrance. Please see the information below and the link or just call into any Australia Post store but be quick as they sell out quickly.
2019 is the 50th anniversary of the historic Apollo 11 mission, when astronauts Neil Armstrong, ‘Buzz’ Aldrin and Michael Collins flew to the Moon, and Armstrong and Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the Moon’s surface. The Mint commemorates this historic event with this striking set of proof coins.
Coin details: Sets include two unique coins: a 5 cent coin representing the Moon with the Apollo 11 landing site, and a $1 coin representing Earth and the Honeysuckle Creek Tracking Station. The first time that the 5-cent coin has been changed in a year set.
Presentation: Packaged in a beautiful presentation folder or presentation cases with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
