Why order this Commemorative 2019-P Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Silver Dollar?

In 2019, the US Mint is marking the 50th anniversary of one of the biggest Cold War victories of the United States and one of the most significant accomplishments in human history with seven coins, all of which are domed and share the same designs. These are just the second domed coins ever issued by the US Mint. This Silver Dollar Commemorative bears the "P" mint mark of the Philadelphia Mint, where it was struck on a 26.73 g planchet of .999 fine silver. It is part of a mintage of 400,000 pieces. This piece comes in its original packaging from the US Mint and will arrive in GEM Brilliant Uncirculated condition.

Inspiring Footprint Design by Gary Cooper

The obverse features a footprint on the surface of the moon. Designed by Gary Cooper, this image is a powerful symbol of the accomplishment. Arching over the footprint are the names of the NASA programs that led up to the moon landing, "MERCURY," "GEMINI," and "APOLLO," along with images of the moon in different phases. "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "2019" are among several other inscriptions on this face.

The reason that the coin is domed is so that the convex reverse looks like Buzz Aldrin's helmet, which is depicted on it. The design recreates a famous photograph that was taken during the first visit to the moon. It depicts Buzz Aldrin's helmet with a reflection in the visor. That reflection shows Neil Armstrong standing between the American flag and the lunar module. "ONE DOLLAR" is inscribed above the flag, while "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one) are inscribed above and below the visor.
