The Royal Australian Mint and the United States Mint proudly present this magnificent two-coin proof set, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the historic Apollo 11 Moon landing of July 1969, and the scientific collaboration between our two nations that brought television of the iconic event to an estimated global audience of 600 million viewers.

For 50 years, the televised moonwalk of NASA’s Apollo 11 lunar mission has been remembered as one of humanity’s most significant achievements. The goal of Apollo 11 was to land a man on the Moon and return him safely to Earth. The Lunar Module Eagle landed on the Moon, in the Sea of Tranquillity on 21 July 1969 AEST (20 July EST). A few hours later Commander Neil Armstrong, followed by Lunar Module Piolet Edwin ‘Buzz’ Aldrin, became the first humans to walk on the Moon’s surface.

Live footage of the moon walk was televised to 600 million global viewers. Australia proudly contributed to the broadcast efforts of NASA’s Apollo 11 mission with four radio antenna: Honeysuckle Creek and Tidbinbilla in the Australian Capital Territory, Carnarvon in Western Australia, and CSIRO’s Parkes radio telescope in New South Wales. These ‘dishes’ and their Australian operators were in position to receive and transmit the telemetry and live broadcast images of the moon walk.

Coin details
