The coins are available with a Certificate of Authenticity from the Pobjoy Mint and feature very limited mintage figures. Each one of the coins is an ultra-high-relief proof.

On July 16, 1969, the Apollo 11 spacecraft lifted off from Merritt Island, Florida, on a mission to reach the Moon. Powered by Saturn V rockets, the Apollo 11 spacecraft included a command module, support module, and the Eagle lunar lander. The support module did not return from space. The Eagle Lunar Lander touched down on the surface of the Moon on July 20, 1969, with Armstrong and Aldrin inside.
On the obverse side of 2019 11 oz First Man on the Moon Silver Coins is the image of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is featured in right-profile relief in a design that is exclusive to the Pobjoy Mint and features the Queen wearing the Royal Diadem crown, coronation necklace, and earrings.
The reverse face of the 2019 First Man on the Moon Silver Coin includes a variety of design elements. The American flag is perched in the center of the design field with the official NASA logo and the mission patch from the Apollo 11 crew. There is also an astronaut’s footprint on the surface.
