How would you send a "message in a bottle" to the universe? What would you say to an alien being who might one day find it?

In 1977 two spacecraft launched into space to explore our outer solar system. Voyager 1 has already left our solar system and is the farthest human-made object ever made. Both Voyager probes carry on them a golden record, a big "hello!" from all of us on Earth, just in case someone finds them one day. The golden record has on its outside engraved instructions for how to operate the record, and the record itself contains sights and sounds from our planet, music, and greetings in 55 different languages.

Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan chose these representative photos and audio recordings, and their son spoke the iconic "Hello from the children of planet earth" message. As Carl Sagan said, "The spacecraft will be encountered and the record played only if there are advanced space-faring civilizations in interstellar space. But the launching of this 'bottle' into the cosmic 'ocean' says something very hopeful about life on this planet."

Celebrate the 40th anniversary of the launch of this remarkable mission with this full size (12 inch, ~30 cm diameter) metal replica of the Voyager Golden Record. The disc is made of golden anodised aluminium (aluminum) and laser etched in amazing detail.

Record comes in a 100% recycled cardboard LP record slip.

Made in Australia.

** If you would like a custom plaque to accompany your Golden Record for framing, please have a look at the listing in my shop! I can make a custom plaque from laminate or glossy gold anodised aluminium. **


Voyager Golden Record replica FAQ

Q: Is this a record I can play on a phonograph?
A: No, this is a replica of the cover of the Voyager Golden Record.

Q: How do I clean my Golden Record?
A: Be careful not to touch the face of the record as fingerprints do show up. To clean, use a soft, lint-free cloth (the kind used to clean eyeglasses is best). This is often enough, but if you need more then use some dishwashing liquid diluted with water. Do not use harsh cleaning materials like Windex.

Q: How can I frame my Golden Record?
A: You can have your record custom framed, or use a ready-made frame that is designed for vinyl records.

It does take a while to arrive in the US from Australia, but it is well worth the wait. I ordered the glossy version and I couldn't be happier with it. It fits as expected in a 12x12 frame.


Arrived bent but fixable. Otherwise a great item. Seller was very responsive to questions.


I don't have words to describe how excited I am to have these two works of art. Truly exquisite workmanship. Shipping was very quick as well considering it came from the other side of the world. Couldn't be happier with my purchase!
