40th ANNIVERSARY OF THE MOON
Engraver: Caitlin Goodall
12 Sided Smooth
2009 was the 40th anniversary of the first manned mission to the Moon and to celebrate this the Royal Australian Mint issued a NCLT 50c for collectors. It was July 21st 1969 when the world sat glued to their television sets watching vision streamed from the Parkes radio telescope. 600 million viewers watched and listened to Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin taking their first steps on the moon thanks to the Apollo 11 space mission. The coin is pad printed with black paint to depict space giving the perspective of opposing skyscapes as though you are looking out the cockpit window of the orbiting Command Module.
