Space fans around the world are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing this month. NASA astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first people to set foot on the moon on July 20, 1969, four days after they launched on their historic mission.
To help you celebrate the Apollo anniversary, Space.com has rounded up some of the coolest Apollo toys, gifts and accessories for "lunatics" looking for lunar landing memorabilia. Be sure to also check out our Apollo 11 books guide and our list of Apollo anniversary events.
Even the U.S. Mint is getting in the Apollo spirit — the entity in charge of producing the nation's currency has created a special line of Apollo 11 50th anniversary coins. This silver dollar is $85 on Amazon, but there are six other types of Apollo anniversary coins in the collection ranging in price from $30 to $460. You can explore the entire collection here.
