One of the greatest events in history took place on July 20, 1969, when Apollo 11 astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first person to walk on the moon. A half-century later, Danbury Mint is proud to offer a unique treasury of Franklin and Kennedy Half-Dollars, beautifully enhanced to create a comprehensive history of America’s manned space programme, and each issued in the same year as the mission it commemorates.
- A magnificent collection of 6 Franklin and 33 Kennedy Half-Dollars, including many struck in silver, each enhanced with official NASA mission patch artwork.
- Colourised coins honouring every Mercury, Gemini, Apollo and Skylab mission, plus important Space Shuttle missions.

With the official NASA mission patch of the featured mission assuring each coin’s exclusive status, The Achievements in Space Coin Collection forms a collectable of meaning, beauty and importance. Each colourised Franklin and Kennedy half-dollar is protected in a crystal-clear holder that makes it safe to examine without fear of damage to the historic image.
