Why order this 2-Coin 2019 Apollo 11 50th Anniversary $1 Coin + Silver Eagle Set?
This 2-coin set brings together the world's favorite bullion coin with an Apollo 11 Commemorative, which marks 50 years since man's first walk on the moon. The set would make a perfect addition to the collection of any patriotic American. Each coin was struck from .999 fine silver, with the Silver Eagle weighing 1 oz and the commemorative dollar weighing 26.73 g.
Stunning Lunar Footprint Design by Gary Cooper
The Apollo 11 Commemorative features Gary Cooper's artwork, which was engraved by Joseph Menna, on the obverse. It features a single footprint on the lunar surface under the names of the three NASA programs that led up to the moon landing, "MERCURY," "GEMINI," and "APOLLO." Phebe Hemphill's reverse design is dominated by the visor of Buzz Aldrin's space helmet. It reflects an image of Neil Armstrong standing between the lunar module and the American flag.
The Silver Eagle bears the series's traditional designs. Adolph Weinman's Walking Liberty design, which depicts the figure carrying laurel and oak branches in her left hand while extending her right hand above the morning sun, features on the obverse. On the reverse is an adaptation of the Great Seal of the United States by John Mercanti. An eagle guards a union shield while clutching arrows and an olive branch under an arrangement of thirteen stars.
Flawless MS70 FDI with Moon Core Holders and Moon Labels
Both coins in this set earned Mint State 70 grades from Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), which means that they are in perfect condition as seen under 5x magnification. They were also certified First Day of Issue, which means that they were submitted through an exclusive process. Each label bears a footprint on the lunar surface, while the core holders themselves look like the surface of the moon.
