On July 20, 1969, the world sat glued to their television sets. Before their very eyes, man first set foot on the surface of the moon. The footprints, flag and plaque left on the lunar surface sent an eternal message throughout the cosmos: humanity had finally reached the heavens, and America led the way.
In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission, Congress has authorized the minting of special, limited-edition curved commemorative coins—something the U.S. Mint has only done once before in their entire 226-year history!
On the obverse, these curved commemorative coins display the indented footprint left by astronaut Neil Armstrong, along with the names of the space programs that led to such a historic moment: Mercury, Gemini and Apollo. Flip the coin over and you’ll see the outward curve of an astronaut’s helmet. This design recreates Armstrong's famous photo of Buzz in which Aldrin's visor reflects an image of Armstrong standing beside the landing module.
The 2019 U.S. Mint Apollo 11 Commemorative series includes both Brilliant Uncirculated and shimmering Proof condition coins struck in gold, silver, or silver-clad cupronickel. Each coin is official legal tender in the United States, and each coin offered here comes graded by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) in perfect Mint State-70 (MS70) or Proof-70 (PF70) condition—flawless even under magnification!
In addition to a perfect grade, each coin comes certified as First Day of Issue (FDI), meaning the coins were received by NGC for grading within 24 hours of the initial mint release.
Best of all, coins are available sealed with labels bearing the hand-signed signature of astronaut Charlie Duke, who not only served as CAPCOM (Capsule Communicator) for the Apollo 11 mission—meaning he was the voice of mission control for the astronauts—but he later became the youngest person to ever set foot on the lunar surface.
On April 16, 1972, Apollo 16 successfully launched from Kennedy Space Center, Florida. Shortly after, Charles (Charlie) M. Duke Jr. became the 10th man to walk the moon. At only 36 years old, Duke was the youngest person to ever step foot on the lunar surface – a record he still holds to this day! Prior to his record-setting moon walk, he served as CAPCOM (Capsule Communicator) where he was the voice at Mission Control in Houston, Texas during the historic first moon landing in 1969.
As a special bonus, the 7-piece and 4-piece sets come with a genuine piece of Kapton Foil used in an Apollo mission. This material covered the command module as a heat shield during re-entry into our planet's atmosphere. Not only will you own one or more pieces from an historic curved series from the U.S. Mint—a series commemorating one of America's greatest achievements—but you'll also take home the hand-signed signature of a man who's set foot on the surface of the moon, as well as a genuine piece of Apollo Kapton Foil! Each foil piece comes certified by Collectibles Authentication Guaranty (CAG) as authentic and genuine in every detail. Just imagine the jaw-dropping reaction from friends and family as you show them your piece of real Apollo material that's been to space and back!
