Yuri Gagarin flew only one cosmic mission, but in 1961 he made history as the first man in space. The 60th anniversary of this historic event is celebrated with the Gagarin 1 oz Silver BU commemorative round. Struck by Germania Mint for the Red Star project, it is the first one from the new Interkosmos series, presenting the achievements and symbols of the Soviet space program.
The obverse of the first medal of the series depicts Yuri Gagarin and the Vostok 1 rocket, with which he reached orbit, the planet Earth in the background and the inscription “Gagarin – the first man in space”.
The reverse features the State Emblem of the Soviet Union and the denomination – 10 victories. The reverse also features the weight, fineness and 2021 year-date.
Each 2021 Interkosmos: Gagarin 1oz silver bullion coin is presented in a protective acrylic capsule. Multiples of 100 are provided in an original mint sealed box.
