In the summer of 1969, the United States achieved one of the greatest technological advancements of the 20th century and dealt a final blow to the Soviet Union in the Space Race for domination of the heavens. In July 1969, NASA sent a three-man team of astronauts to the surface of the Moon, returning them safely back to planet Earth after eight days in space and on the lunar surface.

The Apollo 11 Series was produced by the North American Mint in 2019 to mark the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11s successful mission to the Moon. The eight-round series of silver rounds featured designs that took collectors on a journey through the preparation and launch of Apollo 11, to its touchdown on the Moon, and finally to its return back to Earth. Liftoff was the first design release in the series.
The obverse of 1 oz Apollo 11 Liftoff Silver Rounds features the first design in the series. Known as Liftoff, the design captures the moment that the Apollo 11 command module, lunar lander, and service module lifted off from Kennedy Space Center under the power of Saturn V rockets. This side of the silver round has the magnificent 24-karat gold plating that is applied to the Apollo 11 rocket and other select elements of the obverse field.
On the reverse side of the Apollo 11 Liftoff Silver Round is a depiction of the Apollo 11 mission patch. In honor of the name of the lunar lander, the Eagle lander, the patch features a depiction of an American bald eagle with an olive branch in its talons landing on the surface of the moon. Planet Earth is visible in the distant background field.
