Man's first visit to the moon in 1969 was at once one of the most significant accomplishments in human history and a massive victory for the United States that came in the heart of the Cold War. This coin joins six others in marking the occasion. The coins are all domed, just the second such coins ever produced by the US Mint. It bears the US Mint's "W" mint mark on the obverse. It was one of 50,000 of the gold options struck there, each one on a planchet of 8.359 g of .900 fine gold. The coin is perfect for patriotic Americans and anyone striving toward what may seem an impossible goal. The coin will arrive in GEM Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
Iconic Reflection Design
A competition was held for the obverse design, and a submission by Gary cooper won out. The convex image depicts a footprint on the moon's surface, a symbol of the seminal accomplishment. Arching over the footprint are four images of the moon in different stages, which are spread out along with the inscriptions "MERCURY," "GEMINI," and "APOLLO." "IN GOD WE TRUST," the national motto, is among several other inscriptions on this face.
The reverse design comes from a famous photograph that was taken during Apollo 11's stay on the moon. It is an image of Buzz Aldrin's helmet, the visor of which shows a clear reflection. That reflection shows, from left to right, the American flag, Neil Armstrong, and the lunar module. At the top of the visor is an inscription of the coin's face value, "FIVE DOLLARS." Inscriptions on other parts of the helmet read, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one).
