More info

Alexei Arkhipovich Leonov was born on 30 May 1934 in the small town of Listvyanka, near Lake Baikal in Siberia. He was one of the first cosmonauts trained with Yuri Gagarin.
He gave the world a new perspective on human presence in space by being the first to venture into new territories: he made the first spacewalk, helped to end the US/Soviet space confrontation by shaking hands with a NASA astronaut in orbit and gave form to his memories through his paintings.

Design
The coin’s reverse combines struck and coloured elements portraying a cosmonaut outside the orbiting Voskhod II capsule. The design, which includes the inscription 1965 – FIRST SPACE WALK, ‘orbits’ around a coloured image of Earth.
Thanks to the coin’s unique construction, these design elements literally ‘orbit’ around a coloured representation of Earth.
Issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of the Cook Islands, the coin's obverse depicts the Raphael Maklouf effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2009 year-date and the monetary denomination surrounding another coloured image of the Earth.
