Features the iconic scene when humanity first set foot on the Moon! Order your coin today.

50 years ago, humanity left Earth's exosphere and landed the first humans on the Moon. 50 years ago, humanity imprinted the first footstep on the surface of our natural satellite. History was made. Now, we look back on this day as a milestone in human history, literally reaching for the stars.
While the United States launched and landed the spacecraft, Canadians also have every reason to celebrate. In fact, many don't know that the landing gear for the Apollo 11 Lunar Module was designed by the Canadian company, Héroux-Devtek. Technically, Canadian technology was the first object of Apollo 11's mission to touch the Moon!

Canada's Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau, along with other world leaders, sent messages of goodwill for this historic mission. These messages appear on a silicone disc about the size of a US 50-cent coin that was left on the lunar surface. He wrote, "Man has reached out and touched the tranquil moon. Puisse ce haut fait permettre à l'homme de redécouvrir la Terre et d'y trouver la paix. (May that high accomplishment allow man to rediscover the Earth and find peace.)"

Your 99.99% pure silver coin celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing! Order today.

Special features:
  • HOLD THE MOON! Your coin has a convex shape, rounding the Moon to make it more tangible.
  • AN ESSENTIAL MILESTONE! The Apollo 11 Moon landing is a defining event in humanity's history and a landmark in Canadian engineering.
  • DOUBLE-DATED! Your coin is marked with the memorable dates "1969" and "2019" and "50 years/ans" that have passed since the event.
  • LANDING GEAR FROM QUÉBEC! Héroux-Devtek, the Canadian company that contributed to the successful landing of the Apollo 11, is located in Longueuil - a suburb of Montréal, Québec.
  • DESIGNED BY AN ONTARIAN! While the developing company is located in Québec, the primary designer behind the first moon landing gear was the Canadian engineer, Owen Maynard, born in Sarnia, Ontario.
  • OLD-SCHOOL TECHNOLOGY! 50 years may not seem that long ago in history. However, a cell phone today has more processing power than Apollo's computers; humanity and technology have taken quite the leap!
  • INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE: The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins.
  • 99.99% PURE SILVER COIN: NO GST/HST.

Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Tony Bianco, your coin features the iconic scene when humanity first set foot on the Moon, with the landing module towering in the background.

The message of peace written by Pierre Elliott Trudeau on a tiny silicone disk that was left on the Moon also appears on the edge of the coin. The design features a rounded, convex shape reminiscent of the Moon.

I understand that the moon is not a shiny surface but I would like the coin to present it that way. I get the connection between the look of 'dirt' and the reality, but wanted less 'real'

This coin I purchased for my next re creation of a moon landing diorama. This coin was so unique and beautiful, I incorporated the coin into my design (protected of course) Once it arrived at my place, I was stunned by its historic attraction.
