“That’s one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind.” With these words, millions of people around the world cheered – Neil Armstrong became the first human to set foot on the moon. He had achieved the dream of President John F. Kennedy, who in 1961 challenged the nation to put a man on the moon before the decade’s end. Now, celebrate the 50th anniversary of America’s monumental moon landing with this Prooflike silver round!
Struck in 2 ounces of 99.9% pure silver, it depicts a ground- level view of footprints being left on the moon as Earth rises in the distance. Armstrong’s famous quote is displayed below. On the back, President Kennedy is shown looking wistfully skyward as a shuttle launches, with a statement of weight and purity below. Struck in detailed high relief, this handsome piece perfectly captures the thrill of the “space race!”
