Why purchase this Commemorative Proof 2019-P Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Silver Dollar?

In 1969, NASA achieved what was thought impossible for nearly all of human history when it landed a man on the moon for the first time. The achievement was arguably the greatest in the history of exploration and a major American victory in the country's Space Race with the USSR. The .US Mint is marking the 50th anniversary of the occasion with seven coins that are perfect for star gazers and patriots alike. They are just the second ever domed issues from the US Mint. This piece bears the "P" mint mark of the Philadelphia Mint, where it was struck from 26.73 g of .999 fine silver. With the uncirculated version of the coin, it is part of a mintage of no more than 400,000 pieces.

Moving Lunar Surface Designs by Gary Cooper and Phebe Hemphill

The obverse was designed by Gary Cooper and sculpted by Joseph Menna. The names of the NASA programs that made the moon landing possible, "MERCURY," "GEMINI," and "APOLLO," join four images of the moon in different phases in arching over a single footprint on the surface of the moon. The footprint beautifully captures the simplicity of Neil Armstrong's first step and the magnitude of the accomplishment.

The reverse is the convex face. Its curvature resembles that of Buzz Aldrin's space helmet, which dominates this face. Phebe Hemphill took the image from a famous photograph in which Aldrin's visor shows a reflection of Neil Armstrong standing between the American flag and the lunar module. "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.

Perfect PF70 FR with Black Core Holder

Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) gave this coin their highest grade, Proof 70, and set it in a sleek black core. To receive a Proof 70 grade, a coin must have no imperfections visible under 5x magnification. NGC also certified that it received the coin within 30 days of its initial mint release by labeling it First Releases. It is housed in a sleek black core holder.
