Why order this 50th Anniversary Commemorative 2019-P Apollo 11 5 oz. Silver Dollar Proof?
This 5 oz. Silver Commemorative Dollar Proof gives you chance to be a part of the US Mint's celebration of one of the greatest accomplishments in human history-the Apollo 11 Moon Landing. Not only was the event significant in terms of science and exploration, but it was also an important psychological victory for the United States in the heart of the Cold War. This coin, along with the six others issued for the occasion, is just the second domed release ever from the US Mint. This coin bears the "P" mint mark of the Philadelphia Mint, where it was struck from five ounces of .999 fine silver. Part of a mintage of 100,000 pieces, this piece will arrive in GEM Proof condition.
Iconic Visor Reflection Design
The coin's obverse features a moving design by Gary Cooper: a footprint on the surface of the moon. The footprint is a powerful symbol of one of the greatest moments in human history. It is joined by four images of the moon in various phases, as well as the inscriptions of the NASA programs that made the moon landing possible, "MERCURY," "GEMINI," and "APOLLO." "LIBERTY," "2019," and "IN GOD WE TRUST" are among the other inscriptions on this face.
On the reverse is a reproduction of a photo that was taken during Neil Armstong's and Buzz Aldrin's visit to the moon. The photo shows Aldrin's helmet, the shape of which is mimicked in the convex design. The bulk of the helmet is his visor, which reflects an image of the American flag, Neil Armstrong, and the lunar module, from left to right. The coin's face value, "ONE DOLLAR," is also in the visor area, while inscriptions above and below the visor read, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one), respectively.

In 1961, President John F. Kennedy challenged NASA to put a man on the moon by the end of the decade. The mission lasted eight days and landed not one, but two men, on the face of the moon. Here are some incredible, true facts about the mission.
You probably know that the recently-issued 2019 Apollo 11 50th anniversary $1 silver commemorative coins, are the first U.S. Mint commemoratives struck from .999 fine silver. What you may not know however, is that this trend in “fineness” from the United States Mint is continuing for select releases!
