2019 USA $5 Apollo 11 Moon Landing 1/4oz Gold Proof
An uncommon curved gold coin, this official US Mint release is also notable due to its stature as a 1/4oz curved gold coin! A very rare innovation on a gold coin this size, the curvature of either side has been used to wonderful effect by the Mint's designers...
Using the classic photo of the footprint on the Moon as inspiration on the obverse of this 21.59mm coin. The words “MERCURY,” “GEMINI,” and “APOLLO,” also appear as the names of the US Space Programs that ultimately led to the first Moon Landing.
On the reverse, a representation of the famous “Buzz Aldrin on the Moon” showing just the visor and part of the helmet of astronaut Buzz Aldrin reflecting Neil Armstrong, the US flag, and the lunar lander.
Each 2019 USA Moon Landing $5 Gold coin is presented in official US Mint packaging with certificate of authenticity.
