Space travel is one of mankind’s greatest achievements.
The US has one of the most renowned space programs in the world, which was championed by President Kennedy. His enthusiasm for space exploration committed the nation to the ambitious goal of landing a man on the moon, a goal which was achieved by the Apollo 11 moon landings in 1969.
To mark the 50th anniversary of the first moon landings, and the relationship between President Kennedy and the US space program, the US Mint has released a limited edition proof coin set.
The set includes a Kennedy Enhanced Reverse Proof Half Dollar alongside a commemorative curved Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Proof Half Dollar. Together they form the ultimate tribute to the US space program.
Only the Second Curved US Coin Series in History
The Apollo 11 commemorative coin is only the second in the Mint’s history to be curved – one side is domed, the other concave.
The first commemorative curved coins to be minted by the US– the 2014 Baseball Hall of Fame Coins – completely sold out in less than two weeks.
This stunning domed coin, struck in base metal to a beautiful proof finish and featuring the iconic image of Buzz Aldrin on the moon, comes ready to enjoy in its official US Mint packaging and is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
