It’s been 50 years since American astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first men on the moon! Celebrate that historic event with this half dollar Proof – first in an exciting new 12-coin silver-plated copper series! Selectively enhanced in color, this issue recalls the first moon landing on July 20, 1969. As the people of the world watched breathlessly on television, Armstrong transmitted this message: “Houston... the Eagle has landed.”
This first issue features an astronaut on the surface of the moon. The lunar module and Earth are seen in the distance, with a large 50 honoring the anniversary. Issued as legal tender for the Solomon Islands, it depicts Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. Limited in mintage to 19,069 pieces (honoring the 1969 landing), your coin comes with a certificate of authenticity. You’ll also get the dramatic custom folder to hold all 12 coins in the series and you’ll SAVE off regular prices. Honor this milestone of a great American achievement – and be sure to watch for future issues in upcoming catalogs and online!
