Why order this 2-Coin 2019-S Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Commemorative Clad Half Dollar Proof Set?

On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong took "One small step for man; one giant leap for mankind." Fifty years later, the U.S Mint is celebrating that event with this 2019-S Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Commemorative Clad Half Dollar Proof set that honors both the first Lunar Landing, as well as the role that Former President of the United States, John F. Kennedy took in the revolutionary event. The 2019-S Apollo 11 Commemorative Clad Half Dollar is part of a series that features just the second domed products ever produced by the US Mint. The other part of this set is a Kennedy Clad Half Dollar Enhanced Reverse Proof coin. Both were struck at the legendary San Francisco mint and carry the “S” mint mark. Part of a limited mintage of 100,000 units, this set is perfect for anyone who is looking for inspiration, as well as patriotic Americans.

Patriotic Visor Reflection Design

The Apollo 11 Commemorative Half Dollar in this set, features the design that all of the coins in the U.S Mint’s Apollo 11 Commemorative series share. On the obverse is a simple, yet powerful design by Gary Cooper. It features a single footprint on the lunar surface under the names of the three NASA programs that led up to the lunar landing, "MERCURY," "GEMINI," and "APOLLO." Depictions of the moon in various phases join the names of the programs. "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "LIBERTY" are among several other obverse inscriptions.

The reverse design was taken from a famous photograph of Buzz Aldrin's helmet during the moon landing. The convex design is meant to replicate the look of the helmet. The largest portion of the helmet is the visor, which reflects Neil Armstrong standing between the American flag and the lunar module. Inscriptions on this face include but are not limited to "HALF DOLLAR," which is within the visor, and "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," which is on the top portion of the helm.

Memorializing the Role of Former President John F. Kennedy in America’s Space Program

The obverse of the Kennedy Clad Half Dollar in this set, features the titular 35th President of the United States in a striking enhanced reverse proof finish. On the reverse of the Kennedy Half Dollar is the Presidential Seal of the United States, albeit slightly modified.

Stunning GEM FDI with Moon Core Holder

Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) certified that both of the coins from this set are in GEM condition and labeled them First Day of Issue. The First Day of Issue certification is only given to coins that were submitted to NGC through an exclusive process. The coin has been set in a moon core, which looks like the lunar surface and is offered with a reproduction of the Apollo 11 Mission Patch!
