About 2019 Tokelau - Moon Landing 50 Years Set of Mint Stamps

The wonders of the night sky played an integral role in the population of the Pacific islands and atolls, and in 2019 the world celebrates 50 years since the first Moon landing.

Polynesian navigators look to the stars and the Moon to guide their ocean journeys. Hundreds of years on from the human discovery of Tokelau, humans went on to navigate their way into the stars, and 2019 marks 50 years since the first person set foot on Māhina - the Moon.
