    Giant Leap World Tour, 10/09: Undated Netherlands Gold Medal, PF67 Ultra Cameo NGC, Directly From The Armstrong Family Collection™, CAG Certified. A beautiful 22mm, 6.78 gram, gold medal (or coin) celebrating the Apollo 11 crew's feat. The obverse features the astronauts' busts, the Saturn V rocket, the earth, and the moon. Text reads: "De Eerste Landing op de Maan in Juli 1969. Door: Neil A. Armstrong, Michael Collins, Edwin E. Aldrin" (The First Landing on the Moon in July 1969 By: Neil A. Armstrong, Michael Collins, Edwin E. Aldrin). The reverse depicts the moon with the LM Eagle above, the CM Columbia above, and the earth in the background.
