It was struck from 26.730 g of .999 fine silver at the Philadelphia Mint, the "P" mint mark of which is on the obverse.

Stunning Neil Armstrong Design by Phebe Hemphill
Gary Cooper's obverse design was engraved by Joseph Menna. At the center of the design is a single footprint on the lunar surface, which at once captures the simplicity of the event itself, and the tremendous significance that it had in human understanding and development. Arching over the footprint are images of the moon in four phases interspersed among the names of the three NASA programs that made the landing possible, "MERCURY," "GEMINI," and "APOLLO." Other inscriptions on this face include but are not limited to "2019" and "IN GOD WE TRUST."
The reverse is the convex portion of the coin. Designed by Phebe Hemphill, it mirrors the curvature of the helmet of Buzz Aldrin's spacesuit. The design recreates a portion of a famous picture from the lunar landing in which the visor of Aldrin's helmet clearly reflects Neil Armstrong standing on the surface of the moon between the American flag and the lunar module. The coin's face value, "ONE DOLLAR," is included within the visor section, while other parts of the helmet bear the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one).
