COUNTDOWN TO LAUNCH
President John F. Kennedy’s famous 1961 challenge to the Nation of “achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth,” launched a quest that helped shape and define the 1960s. With Kennedy's vision pointing the way to the ultimate destination, the United States embarked on a journey that required unprecedented innovation, technological and scientific advances, and—perhaps most of all—perseverance in the face of formidable odds.
To celebrate the first manned Moon landing on July 20, 1969, the United States Mint is proud to present the 2019 Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Commemorative Coin Program. The beautifully crafted coins in this program remind us of an optimistic and inspirational event in our Nation's history. It was a moment worth both commemorating and celebrating—a triumph of the human spirit that brought people together and reaffirmed our shared humanity and sense of purpose.
Available in gold, silver, and clad, these exquisite curved coins will be available for purchase on January 24, 2019.
