The obverse side of the 2019 American Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Silver Coin features a sunken, concave, design field that has an astronaut’s footprint in the surface of the moon. The footprint accurately reflects the boots that made up the spacesuits of astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong as the duo completed their lunar exploration in July 1969.
On the reverse face of 2019 $1 American Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Silver Coins is a depiction of a popular photograph taken by Buzz Aldrin on the lunar surface in the summer of 1969. The photo captured a reflection of Neil Armstrong, the Eagle lunar lander, and the American flag on the visor of Aldrin’s helmet. The convex, domed surface on this side perfectly captures the visor of Aldrin and brings the design to life.
All of the American Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Silver coins were produced by the US Mint at its Philadelphia Mint facility with a “P” mint mark below the date on the obverse. There was a maximum mintage of 400,000 coins to be struck across the $1 bullion, $1 proof, and $5 proof silver coins in this design release.
