Featuring the APOLLO 11 "50th Anniversary" colorized American Silver Eagle Dollar U.S. coin, which has been beautifully colorized. This Apollo 11 coin commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first human landing on the moon. On July 20, 1969, after the Apollo 1 tragedy and series of successful tests in Earth and lunar orbit, Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin guided their Eagle lander to Tranquility Base on the surface of the moon while crewmate Michael Collins circled above inside the command module Columbia.
The Apollo missions were the answer to a challenge issued by President John F. Kennedy to put a man on the moon. The landing marked success for the U.S. over the Soviet Union, and has since been billed as the Space Race. This remains among NASA's pinnacle achievement since its inception.
The American Silver Eagle Dollar coin is genuine legal tender struck by the U.S. Mint. It is minted in one full ounce of .999 PURE SILVER and measures a massive 40.6mm in diameter. To keep your coin safe and in peak condition, each coin is showcased in a deluxe black felt coin display gift box, as shown.
