Coin Story

Even though it took place 40 years ago, the Moon landing of July 1969 remains the human race’s greatest technological achievement – and the most eagerly-awaited design theme from the innovative Orbit and Beyond coin program.

Reverse Design

The coin’s reverse portrays Apollo 11 during different phases of its historic mission and an astronaut’s footprint on the surface of the Moon. These elements, which appear on a coloured representation of the Universe, together with the border inscription 1969 - FIRST MAN ON THE MOON, literally ‘orbit’ around a coloured image of Earth.

Obverse Design

Issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of the Cook Islands, the coin's obverse depicts the Raphael Maklouf effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2009 year-date and the monetary denomination surrounding another coloured image of the Earth.


The Orbit and Beyond - First Man on the Moon silver coin is presented in a elliptical-shaped case and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. The case comes in a blue box shipper with a lid depicting an astronaut’s lunar footprint.
