Why purchase this Clad Proof 2019-S Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Commemorative Half Dollar?

This Clad Proof Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Commemorative gives you a chance to be a part of the US Mint's celebration of man's first visit to the moon. This coin is one of seven issued to mark the occasion. All of them share the same designs and are dome-shaped, making them just the second dome-shaped issues ever produced by the mint. Struck at the San Francisco Mint, this coin bears an "S" mint mark. It is part of a joint mintage of 750,000 pieces along with the uncirculated half dollar.

Powerful Moon Landing Designs by Gary Cooper and Phebe Hemphill

On the obverse is a design by Gary Cooper, which was sculpted by Joseph Menna. It features a footprint on the surface of the moon, a poignant yet simple symbol of the visit. Cooper pays homage to the NASA programs that made the lunar visit possible by including their names, "MERCURY," "GEMINI," and "APOLLO," on the top portion of the rim along with depictions of various phases of the moon.

Phebe Hemphill modeled the reverse design off of a portion of a photograph. It features Buzz Aldrin's spacesuit helmet with a reflection of Neil Armstrong standing between the American flag and the lunar module on the visor. Inscriptions on this face include the coin's country and face value, as well as "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one).

Impeccable PF70 ER with Black Core Holder

This coin earned a Proof 70 grade from the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). To receive that grade, a coin must be perfect as seen under 5x magnification. It was also certified Early Releases, a designation used to refer to coins that were submitted for grading no more than 30 days after the initial release. This piece has been set in a black core holder.
