Why order this 2019-S 2-Coin Commemorative Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Clad Half Dollar Proof + Enhanced Reverse Proof Set?
President John F. Kennedy challenged the United States to do what no nation had ever done before, visit the moon, in September of 1962. The young president would not live to see his dream achieved, but achieved it was, in 1969. To mark the 50th anniversary of the occasion, the U.S Mint issued seven coins. This 2-coin set features one of those coins, a clad half dollar proof, as well as an Enhanced Reverse Proof Kennedy Half Dollar. Both bear the "S" mint mark of the San Francisco Mint. No more than 100,000 sets will be struck.
Powerful Moon Landing Designs by Gary Cooper and Phebe Hemphill
A single footprint on the surface of the moon features at the center of Gary Cooper's obverse design for the Apollo 11 commemorative. It is joined by the words "MERCURY," "GEMINI," and "APOLLO," the three NASA programs that led up to the moon landing. Phebe Hemphill's reverse design originated in a photograph taken on the moon. Neil Armstrong stands between the American flag and the lunar module. The image is reflected in the visor of the helmet of Buzz Aldrin's spacesuit.
The Enhanced Reverse Proof Kennedy Half Dollar features the Kennedy Half Dollar's original designs. Gilroy Robert's famous left-side portrait of the young president is on the obverse. The reverse features a modification of the Presidential seal by Frank Gasparro.
