On April 12, 1961, Yuri Gagarin lifted off from Earth powered by a Vostok 1 rocket. His destination was orbit around planet Earth, with his capsule completing one revolution around the planet before he returned to Earth. Gagarin’s achievement was celebrated heavily in the Soviet Union. However, he became a victim of his own success. After the deadly failure of the Soviet space program’s Soyuz 1 program, the government feared the loss of a national hero like Gagarin and barred him from any further space flights as a result.
All of these 2021 1 oz Silver Germania Interkosmos Gagarin Rounds are available with an individual plastic capsule. The rounds in this release are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and have a limited mintage set at just 15,000 rounds.
On the obverse of 2021 Silver Germania Interkosmos Gagarin Rounds is an image of the Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin. He is depicted in the foreground of the design field wearing his full spacesuit. Planet Earth is depicted in the background field with the Vostok 1 rocket also included in the design element.
The reverse side of the 2021 1 oz Silver Interkosmos Gagarin Rounds features the State Emblem of the Soviet Union. The seal of the Soviet Union became famous around the world after World War II. Its hammer-and-sickle combination has been subsequently adopted by countless other communist nations around the globe.
