CoinGold Half Gram 2019 Moon Landing

The Barbadian Dollar has been the currency of Barbados since 1973, when it replaced the Eastern Caribbean Dollar. It is normally abbreviated with the dollar sign $, or alternatively BBD $ to distinguish it from other dollar-denominated currencies.

Apart from the regular circulating coinage, the country has also authorised some foreign mints to issue commemorative and bullion coins under its jurisdiction. Some of these are in the half gram of gold mini-coin format.

This coin is dedicated to the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Lunar Mission on 20 July 1969, one of the most important events in human history - the first time when a human landed on the Moon.
