    Commemorative Apollo 11 Silver Bullion Available from JM Bullion

    2019 brings with it a landmark celebration for precious metal enthusiasts and fans of the cosmos. Some of the world’s most beloved bullion coins programs celebrate major anniversaries in 2019, but for some those coins are outshined by the 50th anniversary of NASA’s Apollo 11 mission. Fulfilling a decade-long challenge set forth by President John F. Kennedy in 1961, America won the Space Race and sent mankind to another celestial body for the first time in human history in the summer of 1969.

    United States Mint Silver & Gold Coins

    The United States Mint also offers a commemorative series of gold and silver bullion coins for purchase to mark the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11. The US Mint has a wide array of coins available, but the primary collection consists of brilliant silver and gold bullion coins. All five of these commemorative bullion issues shares the same obverse and reverse design. Each coin is a curved specimen with a convex reverse face and a concave obverse.

    On the obverse side of all coins is the image of an astronaut’s footprint on the moon’s surface. This is accompanied by engravings of “Mercury, Gemini, Apollo” and four phases of the moon depicted. Other markings include “In God We Trust,” “Liberty,” “2019,” and the “P” mint mark of the Philadelphia Mint for silver coins, or the “W” mint mark of the West Point Mint for the gold coins.

    The reverse face of the US Mint Apollo 11 Series coins includes the recreated image of a photo Buzz Aldrin took on the moon’s surface. Looking into his own visor, the photo captures the reflecting of the American flag, the Eagle lunar lander, and Neil Armstrong standing in the distance. You can also see Aldrin’s shadow. The helmet and visor Aldrin wears frame the entire design on this side.

    The United States Mint’s five primary coins include the following:

    • 1 oz Uncirculated Coin – $1 (USD)
    • 1 oz Proof Coin – $1 (USD)
    • 5 oz Proof Coin – $1 (USD)
    • $5 Uncirculated Gold Coin
    • $5 Proof Gold Coin

    Unique mintage figures were set for each of the various Apollo 11 American Silver and Gold Coins. The 1 oz silver coins had a mintage of 400,000 across the US Mint’s celebratory 1 oz silver lineup. The 5 oz silver coin had a mintage of 100,000 across the product lineup. The two $5 gold coins, each of which contained 8.359 Grams (.2687 Troy oz) of actual gold content, had mintage caps of 50,000 across the product lineup.

    All of the coins from the United States Mint feature individual capsules and a US Mint display box, along with a Certificate of Authenticity.

    Background on Apollo 11

    Apollo 11 was the fifth crewed mission in the Apollo program and the first to ever set mankind on another celestial body and return them safely to Earth. The Apollo 11 mission featured a three-man crew of Michael Collins, Buzz Aldrin, and Neil Armstrong. The men lifted off from Cape Canaveral on July 16, 1969, and landed in the Pacific Ocean on July 24, 1969. The men returned with only the landing pod after departing Earth with a command module, support module, and Eagle lunar lander.
