Why purchase this 2019-P Apollo 11 50th Anniversary 2-Coin Commemorative Silver Dollar Set?
In July of 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin did what no other men had done before when they stepped out of the lunar module and onto the surface of the moon. The achievement was both one of the greatest in the history of exploration and an important win for the United States in the Space Race with the Soviet Union. The U.S Mint issued seven coins to mark the 50th anniversary of the occasion in 2019, and these two silver dollars are among them. Both of these coins were struck from 26.73 g of .999 fine silver at the Philadelphia Mint and bear that mint's "P" mint mark on the obverse. The coins are part of a joint mintage of 400,000 pieces.
Exquisite Lunar Surface Reflection design by Phebe Hemphill
Both coins share the same designs. Gary Cooper's obverse features a single footprint on the surface of the moon, a simple yet powerful symbol of the mission. Cooper pays homage to the NASA programs that led up to the mission by including their names, "MERCURY," "GEMINI," and "APOLLO," along the rim at the top. "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," and "2019" are also inscribed on this face.
The convex side of the coins, the reverse, features Phebe Hemphill's recreation of a portion of a famous photograph that was taken during the Apollo 11 landing. Neil Armstrong stands between the American flag and the lunar module on the surface of the moon. The image is reflected in the visor of Buzz Aldrin's space helmet, the curvature of which is recreated in the curvature of the coin. "ONE DOLLAR" is inscribed within the visor, while "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one) are inscribed above and below it.
Impeccable MS70 + PF70 with Black Core Holders and Charlie Duke Signed Labels
Both of these coins are in perfect condition as seen under 5x magnification according to Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), which awarded them their highest grades, Mint State 70 and Proof 70. NGC set the coins in sleek black cores and provided grading information on labels that were signed by the tenth man to walk on the moon, Charlie Duke.
