In 2019, the United States Mint celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 space mission from NASA with an impressive series of domed gold and silver coins. The coins all featured the same obverse and reverse designs, with Brilliant Uncirculated, Proof, and silver clad options available across the range. Today, you have the opportunity to buy 2019 $1 Proof American Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Silver Coins online at Provident Metals.
Apollo 11 was the culmination of a decade of work at NASA to meet a goal set forth for the country by President John F. Kennedy. If America was sucker-punched by Soviet successes with Sputnik and early manned space flights, it delivered the knockout blow to end the Space Race by successfully sending human beings to the Moon and returning them safely home to Earth. Over the course of eight days in July 1969, America definitively ended the Space Race with a resounding victory.
On the obverse side of 2019 $1 Proof American Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Silver Coins is a depiction of the lunar surface. The textured, sunken obverse field has a large astronaut footprint in the center with four phases of the Moon above and the names of NASAs space programs from the 1960s. Inscriptions here include Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, In God We Trust, 2019, Liberty, and the Philadelphia Mints P mint mark.
The reverse face of the 2019 $1 Proof American Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Silver Coin comes with an image of Neil Armstrong standing on the lunar surface near the Eagle lunar lander and the American flag. If you look at the outer edges of the design field, you can see this image is actually reflected on an astronaut visor. This design is based on a famous photograph taken on the Moon by Buzz Aldrin that captured this seen in his own visor. This side of the coin is domed for a more accurate replica of the original design and has inscriptions of United States of America, One Dollar, and E Pluribus Unum.
The Apollo 11 mission was an eight-day effort to finally send humans to the Moon before the end of the decade. President Kennedy had challenged the nation earlier in the 1960s to meet this goal to show the world what it could do.
These 2019 $1 Proof American Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Silver coins are available with the original US Mint presentation box and a protective plastic capsule around the coin. Also included is a Certificate of Authenticity.
