The United States Mint issued its first-ever raised coins in 2014 with an honorary collection for Major League Baseball and the Hall of Fame. Since then, it has reserved the issuance of such coin designs to special, commemorative collections. In 2019, the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11 came around and the US Mint wanted to honor NASAs crowning achievement from the 20th century with a beautiful design. Today, you have the opportunity to purchase 2019 Proof American Apollo 11 50th Anniversary 1 oz Silver Coins online at Provident Metals in perfect condition.
The United States Mint issued a number of commemorative coins in 2019 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11s success in July 1969. The series of coins included both BU and Proof options across gold and silver releases. The silver release, in particular, featured a 1 oz silver coin and these 5 oz silver proofs.
On the obverse of the 2019 Proof American Apollo 11 50th Anniversary 1 oz Silver Coin is a depiction of the footprint left on the lunar surface by an astronauts suit. In this remarkable design, the sunken field features the boot print sunk into the surface of the Moon. Inscriptions include Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, In God We Trust, 2019, and Liberty. There are also four marks along the top rim that include the four major phases of the Moon.
The reverse side of 2019 Proof American Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Silver Coins comes with a raised design field bearing a reflected image on the lunar surface. The Eagle lunar lander is found in the foreground with Neil Armstrong depicted in the distance. The American flag is shown planted on the surface of the Moon as well. You can see the shadow of Buzz Aldrin and the raised field reflects the curvature of the visor on Aldrins helmet. Inscriptions read United States of America, One Dollar, and E Pluribus Unum.
Apollo 11 was an eight-day mission that saw NASA achieve former-President John F. Kennedys goal of seeing the nation send a man to the Moon and safely return him to Earth.
