|Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Commemorative Tile|
This limited edition Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Commemorative Ceramic Tile commemorates the first landing of astronauts on the Moon on July 20, 1969.
A 3D image of an astronaut walking in a spacesuit and the footprint of Buzz Aldrin in the moon dust of the lunar surface are depicted on the tiles. The area of the footprint is glazed using dust from the NWA 11273 Lunar Meteorite as the sole coloring ingredient. The borders of the tiles are overglazed in 22k gold to symbolize the golden anniversary of this historic event when men first left Earth and walked on the Moon.
The tiles measure approximately 3.75 inches (95 mm) wide by 4 inches (100mm) high.
