Why buy this Commemorative 2019-S Apollo 11 50th Anniversary 2-Coin Clad Half Dollar Proof + Enhanced Reverse Proof Set?
On September 12, 1962, President John F. Kennedy delivered his famous "Moon Speech" at Rice Stadium. The following year, he was assassinated. His legacy lived on, though, as the United States realized his dream in 1969 when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first men ever to walk on the moon. Now, the U.S Mint is marking the 50th anniversary of the moon landing with a two-coin set that honors both the landing and the President whose vision made it possible. The set includes an Apollo 11 Clad Half Dollar Proof and an Enhanced Reverse Proof Kennedy Half Dollar. A maximum of 100,000 sets will be released, with each coin in the set featuring the San Francisco Mint's "S" mint mark.
Classic President John F. Kennedy Design by Gilroy Roberts
The Kennedy Half Dollar features the same designs that have appeared almost without exception since the inception of the series in 1964. On the obverse is Gilroy Roberts's left-side portrait of the young president. Frank Gasparro's modified presidential seal is on the reverse.
The Apollo 11 Clad Half Dollar Commemorative, which is domed, consists of two images that honor the lunar landing. The obverse bears Gary Cooper's lunar footprint design along with the names of the NASA programs that made the moon landing possible. On the reverse is Phebe Hemphill's unique design of Neil Armstrong standing on the moon as seen in the reflection of the visor of Buzz Aldrin's helmet.
Perfect PF70 ER with Black Core Holders
Both coins in this set were placed in black core holders and graded Proof 70 by the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). That grade is given only to coins that are in perfect condition as seen under 5x magnification. The coins were also labeled Early Releases due to the fact that they were received for grading within the first 30 days after the mint first released the set. Both coins are set in a stylish black holder that provides a stunning contrast.
Don't miss your chance to own this 2019-S 2-Coin Commemorative Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Clad Half Dollar Proof + Enhanced Reverse Proof Set.
