Why purchase this 2019-S US Clad Proof Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Commemorative Half Dollar?
In 1969, the Apollo 11 mission did what man had only dreamed of doing since he first walked the Earth: land on the surface of the moon. An estimated 20 percent of the global population watched Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin emerge from the lunar module and set foot on the heavenly body. The U.S. Mint commemorated the 50th anniversary of the historic event with this clad proof half dollar. This coin gives you the chance to share in that momentous celebration.
Powerful Lunar Footprint Design by Gary Cooper
Obverse: Gary Cooper designed and Joseph Menna sculpted the obverse design. A single footprint on the surface of the simply yet stunningly represents the signature accomplishment of the Apollo 11 mission. The names of the NASA programs that led up to the landing, "MERCURY," "GEMINI," and "APOLLO," are interspersed with images of the moon in different phases on the top half of the rim. Other inscriptions on this face include "LIBERTY," the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date, "2019."
Reverse: Phebe Hemphill's reverse design comes from the famous Buzz Aldrin on the Moon photograph. Aldrin's helmet fills this face. In the visor is a reflection of Neil Armstrong standing between the American flag and the lunar module. "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "HALF DOLLAR," and "E PLURIBUS UNUM" are inscribed on this face.
