This Apollo 11 50th Anniversary 5 oz Proof Silver Dollar celebrates the first manned Moon landing on July 20, 1969, and the efforts of the United States space program leading up to the historic event. This commemorative silver dollar is the first United States coin to be struck in .999 pure silver (previous commemorative silver dollars were composed of 90% silver and 10% copper). It is also the first US coin to be struck with a proof finish, reeded edge, and domed shape. Each coin arrives in a black velvet presentation box accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
A portion of the cost of each coin will be donated by the US Mint to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum’s “Destination Moon” exhibit, the Astronauts Memorial Foundation, and the Astronauts Scholarship Foundation. Don’t miss your opportunity to own both a valuable investment and memorable keepsake that will be appreciated for years to come!
The obverse features an astronaut’s footprint, an iconic symbol of the first “small step for man”, on the rocky surface of the moon. MERCURY, GEMINI, and APOLLO, separated by phases of the Moon, are inscribed along the top. 2019, IN GOD WE TRUST, and LIBERTY are also inscribed.
This reverse pays tribute to the famous “Buzz Aldrin on the Moon” photograph taken July 20, 1969 which depicts astronaut Neil Armstrong, the United States flag, and the lunar lander reflected in astronaut Buzz Aldrin’s helmet. Inscriptions include UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, ONE DOLLAR, and E PLURIBUS UNUM.
