Ascension Islands - it is where the tracking station was located during the flight of the Apollo-13

Apollo 13 was the seventh crewed mission in the Apollo space program and the third meant to land on the Moon. The craft was launched from Kennedy Space Center on April 11, 1970, but the lunar landing was aborted after an oxygen tank in the service module (SM) failed two days into the mission. The crew instead looped around the Moon, and returned safely to Earth on April 17. The mission was commanded by Jim Lovell with Jack Swigert as command module (CM) pilot and Fred Haise as lunar module (LM) pilot. Swigert was a late replacement for Ken Mattingly, who was grounded after exposure to rubella.
Anyone on planet Earth at the time will remember exactly where they were and what they were doing on 20th July 1969 when Apollo 11 landed on the moon and Neil Armstrong took his first steps on the lunar surface uttering the words “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”. Therefore we are delighted to announce the release of stunningly unique Ultra High Relief and Domed coin to mark the 50th Anniversary of one of the most historic events of our time.
This spectacular and unusual Ultra High Relief and Domed coin replicate the surface of the moon with its rough terrain and craters rising from the surface. The coin also includes the famous footprint left on the moon’s surface along with the flag of the United States of America.  We were also delighted to be given special permission by NASA to include the ‘meatball’ logo and the Apollo 11 Crew Patch. The obverse of the coin features the exclusive effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.       
With its direct link to the Apollo 11 Mission, it is particularly apt that this coin is being released on behalf of the Government of Ascension Island.  Devil’s Ashpit on the eastern side of Ascension Island made a perfect site to build a NASA tracking station.  With volcanic peaks surrounding the site, it provided a natural shield against radar and other interference from elsewhere on the island.  Originally constructed in 1965 to support the earlier Surveyor missions, it also supported the later deep space and Apollo manned missions and tracked Apollo 11 on its flight from the Earth to the Moon.
