The United States Mint unveiled prices and household order limits for its suite of upcoming products that celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing. The limits range from 1 to 100 and published prices are from $25.95 to $224.95.

On Jan. 24, the U.S. Mint will release curved-shape Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Commemorative Coins composed from gold, silver or clad and struck in collector qualities of proof and uncirculated. (See images of the coins.) The Mint will also issue a set containing a proof Apollo 11 half-dollar and an enhanced reverse proof Kennedy half-dollar that commemorates the relationship between President Kennedy and the American space program. 

Prices of the products and their limits are:

  Introductory Price Mintage Limit Product Limit Household Order Limit
2019-W Proof $5 Gold Coin * 50,000 None 1
2019-W Uncirculated $5 Gold Coin 1
2019-P Proof Silver Dollar $54.95 400,000 100
2019-P Uncirculated Silver Dollar $51.95 100
2019-S Proof Clad Half Dollar $27.95 750,000 None
2019-D Uncirculated Clad Half Dollar $25.95 None
2019-S Proof Half Dollar Set $53.95 100,000 5
2019-P Proof $1 Five Ounce Silver Coin $224.95 100,000 None 5

 

*Prices for the gold coins will be available the day before their release and based on the trending value of gold. Based on gold’s current price of about $1,290 an ounce, today the proof $5 gold would be $418.75 and the uncirculated $5 gold coin would be $408.75.

Prices include surcharges of $50 per 5-ounce silver dollar, $35 per gold coin, $10 per silver dollar, and $5 per half-dollar. Provided the coins turn a profit, the collected funds will be shared between the Smithsonian Institution’s National Air and Space Museum’s Destination Moon exhibition; the Astronauts Memorial Foundation; and the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation.

As discussed last week, the U.S. Mint and the Royal Australian Mint are collaborating on a special set featuring a U.S. Apollo 11 half dollar paired with an Australian Moon Landing 1 oz. $5 Silver Coin. Its price, release date, and limits are not yet available.

I predict the gold will be an instant sell out, but I can’t believe the outrageous price on the 5oz puc! Now that’s REALLY highway robbery!
I’ll buy the gold, but I’m having second thoughts on the 5oz….

i just got back from the f.u.n. show, i thought the u.s. mint would have these on display but they did not. often they will have soon to be released products on display. i agree with j. peter on the gold being a quick sell out. by the way the f.u.n. show was fantastic as usual.

There are a Black Horse : Enhanced reverse proof Kennedy coin . It is only 100k set mintage . But 1 thing keep on mind : it didn’t contain any silver ! So, that mean 50 cent is value 50cents . 2nd thing : half dollar proof coin charge almost $28 each . Is it made by Tiffany Company ? What the Heck . No wonder why Numismatics is down trend .

You have to buy both coins to get the reverse proof as it appears not to be sold as an individual issue. The dealers will buy the entire 100k and sell the Kennedy for $199 each. I believe that the limit is 100 sets/household, so they might as well ship the entire issue to Mike Mezack for sale on HSN

“Provided they turn a profit” REALLY?? The “surcharge is put in place to help these places and should be a separate fund!! NOT “provided” they turn a profit… But at these prices they should turn a hefty profit!

Prices include surcharges of $50 per 5-ounce silver dollar, $35 per gold coin, $10 per silver dollar, and $5 per half-dollar. Provided the coins turn a profit, the collected funds will be shared between the Smithsonian Institution’s National Air and Space Museum’s

The Mint has ball$ the size of Milwaukee, 2 CLAD 50c for like $55…such a deal, a great money maker, but I will pass based upon the sheer greed of the USM & the lack of DIVERSITY in these designs… why only 1 across all coin$ wtf the Congressman who came up with this is a moron

Another joke from the us mint that nobody wants, who designs this garbage. Maybe the same ones that came out with the ww1 medal zombie junk.!!

$225.00 for a five ounce silver proof coin is absolutely ridiculous! What a rip off for 5 oz of silver. I certainly won’t buy one at that price! How is that price justified?

The gold & the Kennedy sets will be successful issues for the mint and good coins for collectors.
