The world’s first eleven-sided gold sovereign coin set, in tribute to Apollo 11’s historic moon landing – The 2019 Moon Landing 50th Anniversary Gold Half and Full Sovereign Set
Neil Armstrong’s first step on the Moon in 1969 was one of the greatest moments in the history of mankind. A fifth of the world’s population watched in awe as humans walked on another world for the very first time. It’s hard to think of an event that has captivated the public imagination in the same way in the 50 years since.
In July 2019, the world marked the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing, and as part of the celebrations exceptional gold coins have been minted. In tribute to the Apollo 11 mission, the world’s first eleven-sided sovereigns have been created.
This was an event of global significance – one of the greatest human ventures of exploration and discovery. Many people today remember where they were, when the pictures were beamed to earth of the first steps on the moon. and so a commemorative sovereign is well and truly deserved.
Never before has a sovereign coin with 11 sides been struck. Authorised by The East Caribbean States and minted in Britain it is a superb tribute to the moon landing.
Comes in a luxury presentation box with space to put your 2020 VE Day 75th Anniversary Gold Quarter Sovereign along side the half sovereign and sovereign., and approved by both the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Buckingham Palace, it is a wonderful celebration – and a world first one at that – of peace brought by VE Day.
