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.)"
