On July 20, 1969, humanity achieved something that had been thousands of years in the making. Though human beings were long obsessed with the solar system in which they lived, the technology to leave the bounds of Earth did not exist until the 20th century. In 1969, America achieved a tremendous feat for humanity by sending humans to another celestial body and returning them home. That feat is celebrated on gold and silver coins from the US Mint.
