A CoinNews photo of a 2019-W Proof Apollo 11 50th Anniversary $5 Gold Coin. Buyers have claimed 29,584 of the dome-shaped gold pieces through June 21.

The dome-shaped commemoratives realized their strongest week of sales since February. Four of the available seven Apollo 11 coin products were among the Mint’s top weekly sellers. The 2019-P Proof Apollo 11 Silver Dollar led them all, advancing 8,636 to 184,911. The West Point gold proof ranked ninth, despite its higher price, climbing 1,061 to 29,584.

Overall, collectors scooped up another 14,311 Apollo 11 coins to nearly triple their previous weekly sales, which itself was strong given that their initial launch dates back six months. A combined 539,374 have now sold.

Here’s a table summarizing the latest Apollo 11 coin sales by product:

In my opinion, The finest proof $5 gold coin the Mint has ever made hands down. From the special last week on the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, They showed those 2 pictures that were taken on the moon, And, They look identical to the coin. Phenomenal job,craftsmanship United states Mint. I love mine.These should’ve sold out long ago.

Actually the silver looks more ‘authentic’ (closer to moon color). Maybe they should have done these in platinum or palladium…

IMHO Only on the 5oz does the design pop & come alive. The others are too small. Should have gone with something different, legislation is stupid if it mandated ALL with the same designs……
