This beautifully toned silver medal celebrates the first manned landing on the moon. I remember being glued to the TV screen as a child, waiting for touchdown while drawing space ship after space ship. The first moon landing was commemorated in countless medals, but this is one of the most beautiful.
The circular medal measures 64mm in diameter and was struck in silver by Robert Smith & Reading, England.
