NASA's Apollo 11 mission took place in 1969 and the 50th anniversary of its success is in 2019. The U.S. Mint has created a lineup of Apollo 11 commemorative coins to mark the 50th anniversary. The San Francisco Mint struck this clad half dollar. It has a proof finish and an intriguing dome shape. Mintage of this proof half dollar is limited.
Iconic Lunar Footprint Design
The obverse of this dome shaped coin shows the surface of the Moon with a large footprint. There are plenty of fine details to observe here. This side is inscribed with the names of several early NASA programs.
