Description

The final release in the «Real Heroes» series honours the monumental efforts of space explorers like Yuri Gagarin and Neil Armstrong. Complementing the black proof silver edition, four premium editions will further expand the series.

With the portrait of an astronaut standing upon the lunar surface, the helmet’s visor reflecting our very planet in all its splendour, we strive to capture the essence and the scale of these human achievements. Additionally, the quote «The sky is not the limit» is micro minted on the rim. The 1 oz gold and platinum issues are a top minting achievement due to the visor’s mirror look, combined with maximum curvature and relief height.

These limited-edition masterpieces honour the courage, innovation, and pioneering spirit of those who dare to venture beyond the boundaries of our world.
