Anyone over the age of 55 knows exactly where they were 50 years ago when we heard the famous words “The Eagle has Landed” announcing to the world that the United States had won the space race to put the 1st man on the moon. Six hours after landing the first man set foot on the moon stating “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”.
In honor of this historic event, nearly every mint in the world is striking some kind of a commemorative coin to help celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the moon landing.
This offering includes a 2-coin Gold & Platinum proof set issued featuring the same iconic design. Again, in keeping with the 50th anniversary theme both coins were struck with 50 grams (1.6oz) .999 pure Gold & 50 grams .999 pure Platinum and only 50 sets are being minted for worldwide distribution. The serial number of each set on a plaque inside the presentation case.
