+++ Comes in a nice giftbox with certificates. Consider adding the 2 view frame for $5 for this coin +++
In honor of the 50th anniversary of NASA’s Apollo 11 mission, Congress authorized the release of this special, limited-edition commemorative half dollar Proof. Not just any half dollar, it represents just the second time in history that the U.S. Mint has struck a coin with a curved surface! On the coin’s obverse is the indented footprint left by astronaut Neil Armstrong along with the names of the space programs that led to such a historic moment: MERCURY, GEMINI and APOLLO separated by phases of the Moon. Flip the coin over and you’ll see the outward curve of an astronaut’s helmet. The design recreates a close-up of the famous photograph snapped by Neil Armstrong of Buzz Aldrin.
The designs on this popular coin are incredibly detailed, and at 30.607 mm in diameter, it’s the perfect size to showcase every nuance of the intricate details. And now you can secure one of these historic half dollars lavished in a combination of Black Ruthenium and 24-karat gold! The contrast between the deep black color and the gleaming brilliance of gold really sets these coins apart!
You’ll have a blast adding this coin to your collection, but don’t wait too long; when they’re gone, they’re gone! So, don’t miss this historic release – it’s one small purchase for you and one giant leap for your collection!
