Struck at the US Mint branch in Philadelphia, this is the official American commemorative coin celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing in 1969.
Minted on a curved silver blank, the US Mint’s designers have used the classic photo of the footprint on the Moon as inspiration on the obverse of this 38mm 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 Silver coin is presented in official US Mint packaging with certificate of authenticity.
