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

Share in the fiftieth anniversary celebration of one of the seminal accomplishments in human and American history, the first landing on the moon. The event not only had scientific significance, but it also marked a major victory for the United States in the Cold War space race with the Soviet Union. This coin, which is one of seven issued to mark the occasion, was struck at the Philadelphia Mint on a 26.73 g planchet of .999 fine silver. It is part of a mintage of 400,000 pieces across all silver options being offered by the mint.

Patriotic Aldrin Visor Design

Gary Cooper won a design contest for the obverse. At the center is a footprint on the surface of the moon. Arching over the footprint are the words "MERCURY," "GEMINI," and "APOLLO," which are interspersed with images of the moon in four different stages. The names represent the programs that led up to the historic mission. "LIBERTY," "2019," and "IN GOD WE TRUST" are also inscribed on this face.

The reverse replicates a famous photo of Buzz Aldrin's helmet that was taken while he and Armstrong were on the moon. The image shown in the visor, which is convex to replicate the curvature of the helmet, shows Neil Armstrong standing between the American flag and the lunar module. "ONE DOLLAR" is inscribed at the top of the visor, while "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "E PRURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one) are inscribed on the helmet above and below the visor, respectively.

Perfect PF70 FR with Moon Core Holder

Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), one of the world's leading grading services, awarded this coin its highest grade, Proof 70. Only coins that are flawless as seen under 5x magnification receive that grade. NGC also indicated that the coin was received for grading within 30 days of its initial release by labeling it "First Releases." The coin has been set in a holder that looks like the lunar surface and you will also receive an eye-catching reproduction of the Apollo 11 Mission Patch .

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

Great protection
Naturally i love the coin but the encasement is well made and the coin is well protected. Bottom line is that the coin is well displayed as to not to be touched.
