Near the town of Parkes in central NSW, there stands a silent sentinel, whose ‘eyes’ have given us the universe. The Parkes Radio Telescope or ‘The Dish’ as it is more affectionately known remains one of the world’s most highly regarded scientific establishments. Its part in televising the historic Apollo 11 moon landing also brought into clear focus Australia’s cutting edge technology in the field of radio astronomy. For the clarity of its images, it was chosen by NASA ahead of two other receiving stations to bring the world Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin’s legendary moon walk. ‘The Dish - Parkes Radio Telescope Golden Proof Coin’ shows its important place in our history and the esteem in which it is held throughout the scientific community, available only from The Bradford Exchange.

History is represented by a cameo portrait of Neil Armstrong’s first step for man footprint and one of crewmate Buzz Aldrin taking a moon walk. The scenes are united by a shimmering celestial sky and in one of its stars, a genuine Swarovski ‘turquoise’ crystal catches the light hinting at the role the Parkes Radio Telescope will play in expanding our knowledge of the universe. Limited to 599 issues worldwide, this impressive coin is entirely layered with pure 24-carat gold. At 65mm in diameter and weighing 110 grams, coins of such proportions are struck to mark occasions of great importance. An informative, numbered Certificate of Authenticity is yours FREE with a luxury presentation case. But strong demand is expected, so don’t miss out! Order yours today!
