Why buy this 2019 50th Anniversary Apollo 11 Commemorative Silver Dollar Proof?

Man's first walk on the moon in 1969 was both a seminal accomplishment for the species and a major victory for the United States during the Cold War. This makes the coin perfect for anyone who likes to celebrate human progress, wants inspiration to help them toward a big goal, or is simply a patriotic American. This coin is one of seven coins released to mark the occasion. All of the coins are domed, just the second such release in the US Mint's history. This coin is part of a mintage of 400,000 pieces. It was struck on a 26.73 g planchet of .999 fine silver at the Philadelphia Mint, which is represented by a "P" mint mark on the obverse. The coin will arrive in GEM Proof condition in its original mint packaging.

Historic Reflection Design

Gary Cooper won a contest for the obverse design. It features a single footprint on the surface of the moon, a small but powerful symbol of the achievement. Along the top half of the room are images of the moon in four stages along with the names of the three NASA programs that made the moon landing possible, "MERCURY," "GEMINI," and "APOLLO. Several other inscriptions are also on this face, including the coin's date, "2019," and the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST."

The convex reverse is intended to replicate the shape of Buzz Aldrin's helmet. The design comes from a famous photograph in which the American flag, the lunar module, and Neil Armstrong are visible in the reflection on Aldrin's visor. The coin's face value, "ONE DOLLAR," is inscribed in the upper left of the visor area, while "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one) are inscribed on other parts of the helmet.

Don't miss your chance to own this 50th Anniversary Commemorative 2019 Apollo 11 Silver Dollar Proof.
