Product Description

2019 S Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Half Dollar Set PF70 UC ER Astronaut Scholarship Foundation

In the summer of 1969, the United States space agency known as NASA achieved a decade-long goal it had sought: landing a man on the moon and returning him to Earth. Fulfilling a promise laid out by President John F. Kennedy in 1961, Michael Collins, Neil Armstrong, and Buzz Aldrin went to the moon and back. The 2019 American Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Half Dollar Set celebrates the 50th anniversary of this incredible feat and giant leap forward in the history of mankind.

Each coin bears a face value of $0.50 guaranteed by the United States federal government.

Apollo 11 was an eight-day mission that sent three men from NASA to the moon and returned them safely to planet Earth. The astronauts took off from Merritt Island, Florida, on July 16, 1969. The crew included command module pilot Michael Collins, lunar lander pilot Buzz Aldrin, and mission commander Neil Armstrong.

Obverse: This design features the inscriptions “MERCURY,” “GEMINI,” and “APOLLO,” separated by phases of the Moon, and a footprint on the lunar surface, which together represent the efforts of the United States space program leading up to the first manned Moon landing. Additional inscriptions include “2019,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and “LIBERTY.”

Reverse: This design features a representation of a close-up of the famous “Buzz Aldrin on the Moon” photograph taken July 20, 1969, that shows just the visor and part of the helmet of astronaut Buzz Aldrin. The reflection in Buzz Aldrin’s helmet includes astronaut Neil Armstrong, the United States flag, and the lunar lander. Inscriptions include “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “HALF DOLLAR,” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”

The Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Coins from the US Mint is a curved specimen. The obverse side has a concave, sunken surface, while the reverse features a convex, domed surface.

The 2019 Kennedy Half Dollar is a reverse proof coin depicting Kennedy, "LIBERTY", and "IN GOD WE TRUST" on the obverse and a bald eagle on the reverse.


This coin's sales benefit the astronaut scholarship foundation. The Astronaut Scholarship Foundation's mission is to aid the United States in retaining its world leadership in technology and innovation by supporting the very best and brightest scholars in science, technology, engineering and mathematics while commemorating the legacy of America’s pioneering astronauts.


Proof coins differ from mint state coins through the process through which they are created. Mint state coins are struck using the same process as everyday currency, while proof coins are struck using a highly polished planchet. This gives proof coins a mirrored background with a frosted foreground. Mint state coins have the same matte finish as circulated currency, albeit without the wear and flaws.
