2019 Moon Landing Medallion & Stamp Cover PNC

Fifty year ago, at 12.56pm on 21 July 1969 (AEST), an estimated 600 million people worldwide watched American astronaut Neil Armstrong become the first person in history to step onto the surface of the Moon. As he alighted from lunar module Eagle, Armstrong uttered the now immortal words, "That's one small step for (a) man: one giant leap for mankind"

Armstrong was accompanied in the Eagle by pilot Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin, who joined him on the Moon's surface some 20 minutes later, while Michael Collins piloted the command module Columbia in lunar orbit. After 21 hours and 36 minutes on the lunar surface the lunar module docked with the orbiting command module and Armstrong and Aldrin returned to Columbia. Australia played a critical role in telecasting the historic event to the world via NASA's Honeysuckle Creek tracking station (ACT) and the Parkes radio telescope (NSW). The NASA tracking station at Carnarvon (WA) and Tidbinbilla (ACT) also supported the mission.

The medallion features the inscription 'HERE MEN FROM THE PLANET EARTH FIRST SET FOOT UPON THE MOON JULY 1969 A.D, WE CAME IN PEACE FOR ALL MANKIND"

Affixed to the envelope is an official Australia Post $1 commemorative stamp. The stamp is postmarked for the First Day of Issue and the envelope includes Australia Post's Seal of Authenticity.

This Limited Edition Medallion and Stamp Cover is postmarked first day of issue 16 July 2019, Parkes NSW 2870.
