These 2019 Silver Niue Moon Landing 50th Anniversary Proof Coins feature an inset capsule with a small piece of copper. This is no ordinary piece of copper. Each fleck of copper in the capsule of these coins came directly from the Statue of Liberty during a 1985 renovation of the statue. The copper was made into two small replicas of Liberty which were later flown into space aboard the space shuttle Discovery in 1985.
On the reverse of 2019 1 oz Silver Niue Moon Landing 50th Anniversary Proof Coins is the image of the lunar surface in the foreground with a bright red-white-and-blue American flag planted on the Moon. In the distance, the colors of the cosmos come to life with another galaxy, a streaking comet, and planet Earth. The copper in these insets came from one of the two replica statues that was later broken down into Liberty centennial seals.
The obverse of 2019 Silver Niue Moon Landing features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is depicted here in the fourth-generation design from Ian Rank-Broadley and the Royal Mint of England.
