On 20 July 1969 humanity collectively held its breath as astronaut Neil Armstrong took mankind’s first steps on the Moon after emerging from United States spacecraft Apollo 11’s Lunar Module Eagle. An estimated 600 million people across the world watched the momentous event on TV – thanks in part to Australia’s CSIRO Parkes radio telescope and NASA’s Honeysuckle Creek tracking station near Canberra. 
The coin’s reverse honours the historic achievement with a representation of the Lunar Module Eagle landing on the Moon behind a large boot print on the Moon’s surface.
