The Apollo 11 mission lifted off from Merritt Island, Florida, at Kennedy Space Center on July 16, 1969. After four days, the modules approached the Moon and entered an orbit that allowed the Eagle lunar lander to separate and land on the surface of the moon with Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong inside. The mission lasted eight days and included 21.5 hours of time spent on the Moons surface.

Coins listed here are PR70 specimens that have full, original mint luster with no detracting flaws of any kind.

On the obverse side of 2019 Proof American Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Gold Coins is the image of an astronaut footprint. This is like one of the many left behind on the Moon by Aldrin and Armstrong during their moonwalk. The sunken, concave surface beautifully holds the footprint design.

The reverse of 2019 $5 Proof American Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Gold Coins includes a convex surface that presents the photograph reflection in Aldrins visor one a domed surface. This makes it the perfect format for recreating the photograph Aldrin took that captures the Eagle lunar lander, American flag, and Neil Armstrong.
