The Apollo 11 mission was a manned mission that brought Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin to the surface of the moon, marking the first time in the history of humanity that human beings set foot on another celestial body. The mission lasted 8 days, 3 hours, 18 minutes, and 35 seconds from liftoff to splashdown and included 21.5 hours on the lunar surface.
Apollo 11’s success fulfilled the national goal that President John F. Kennedy set forth for the country in 1961. Following the Soviet Union’s first big shot in the Space Race with Sputnik, President Kennedy challenged the nation to put a man on the moon before the decade was out and bring him home safely.
On the obverse of 2019 1 oz Silver American Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Coins is the image of one man’s footprint on the moon. Armstrong and Aldrin spent 21.5 hours on the surface of the moon exploring the lunar surface and collecting samples.
The reverse side of 2019 Silver American Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Coins features a recreated visual of Aldrin’s famous photo. Taken in the Sea of Tranquility, Aldrin’s photo was taken of his helmet’s visor in which you can see Neil Armstrong, the American flag, and the Eagle lunar landing module.
