The Moon is an astronomical body that orbits planet Earth and is Earth's only permanent natural satellite. It is the fifth-largest natural satellite in the Solar System, and the largest among planetary satellites relative to the size of the planet that it orbits (its primary). The Moon is after Jupiter's satellite Io the second-densest satellite in the Solar System among those whose densities are known.
The Moon is thought to have formed about 4.51 billion years ago, not long after Earth. The most widely accepted explanation is that the Moon formed from the debris left over after a giant impact between Earth and a Mars-sized body called Theia.
The reverse of the coin is an incredible concave representation of our fascinating Moon with wonderful colours. On top of the reverse, the inscriptions: “2019” – the year of issue, “THE EARTH AND BEYOND” - The name of the series, “THE MOON” – the name of the coin. On the bottom, the reverse, the inscription: “FIVE DOLLARS” – the face value. The obverse of the coin depicts the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the inscriptions: “ELIZABETH II” – the name of the Queen, “AUSTRALIA” – the issue country and “ONE OUNCE FINE SILVER” – the weight of the coin and the fineness of the Silver.
