The United States Mint on Thursday (Dec. 13) marked the first strike of its Apollo 11 50th Anniversary coins during a ceremony at its Philadelphia facility. Only the second coins in the U.S. Mint’s history to be curved, the coins feature iconic imagery from the first moon landing mission. Scheduled for release Jan. 24, the sale of the coins will benefit the Astronauts Memorial Foundation, the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation and the National Air and Space Museum’s new “Destination Moon” gallery.
