The First EVER ‘Plateau Minted’ coin

This year the world commemorates 50 years since man first set foot upon the moon – a remarkable feat combining science and engineering.

Therefore it’s fitting that the coin struck to mark this anniversary features a brand new minting technique so rare it is in fact a world first!

Plateau Minting

Domed coins have been around for a few years now, but never before has a mint succeeded in successfully striking a plateau area on the peak of the dome…until now!

This coin has been struck with a variation of sophisticated techniques and finishes, in particular the skilful alignment of both Proof and Matt finishes.

The convex side depicts 50 stars and a double-dating in the coin centre – honouring the United States achievement in being the first to land man on the moon.
