Comments

Released by the Royal Australian Mint in the 2019 Mint and Proof Set is this Commemorative 5 cent coin. Celebrating 50 years since Apollo 11 landed on the moon on 20th July 1969.
   

Both the Mint and Proof sets feature two unique coins, this 5 cent coin depicting the lunar landing site on the Sea of Tranquility, and the $1 coin depicting the historic NASA Honeysuckle Creek antenna in the ACT which was used to capture the first 8 minutes of the television images transmitted around the world to an audience of over 500 million people.

The UNC Year Set including this coin was also issued at the 2018 Berlin World Money Fair.


The coin has also been released in a Two Coin Australia Post PNC (with a Commemorative $1 coin) by Australia Post (7500 Copies). 500 Copies were available with a special Overprint at the ANDA Melbourne Money Expo Show.
