Iconic Armstrong Reflection Design by Phebe Hemphill
The mint held a contest for the obverse design, and Gary Cooper's artwork emerged victorious. Sculpted by Joseph Menna, it features a single footprint on the surface of the moon. Arching over the footprint are the names of the NASA programs that made the mission possible, "MERCURY," "GEMINI," and "APOLLO," along with images of the moon in various phases. Other inscriptions on this face read, "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," and "2019."
The reverse is convex to replicate the shape of the space helmet that was worn by Buzz Aldrin. Most of this face, which was designed and sculpted by Phebe Hemphill, is taken up by the visor of that helmet, which shows a clear reflection of the American flag, Neil Armstrong, and the lunar module from left to right. The face value 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, respectively.
Flawless MS70 ER with Black Core Holder
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) awarded this coin their highest grade, Mint State 70, meaning that it lacks even a single imperfection that is visible under 5x magnification. The grading company further indicated that the coin was received no more than 30 days after its initial mint release by certifying it Early Releases. The coin comes set in a sleek black core that provides a stunning contrast.
