To The Moon Apollo 11 Coin and Stamp Collection

  • Celebrate the people and events that helped shape our country's history.
  • Features: Ohio State Quarter, Susan B. Anthony Dollar, Bicentennial Eisenhower Dollar,
  • 'First Man on the Moon' Stamp

America's conquest of space reached its climax on July, 20th 1969, when Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong and buzz Aldrin became the first men to walk on the moon. This Collection celebrates mankind's greatest adventure as depicted on official U.S. coins and an official U.S. Stamp.

-The Ohio quarter, the second quarter of 2002 and seventeenth in the 50 State Quarters Program, honors the state's contribution to the history of aviation, depicting an early aircraft and an astronaut, superimposed as a group on the outline of the state. The design also includes the inscription "Birthplace of Aviation Pioneers".

-The Susan B. Anthony dollar is a United States coin minted from 1979 to 1981, and again in 1999. It depicts women's suffrage campaigner Susan B. Anthony. The reverse depicts an eagle flying above the moon (with the Earth in the background), a design adapted from the Apollo 11 mission insignia that was also present on the previously issued Eisenhower Dollar.

-The Eisenhower Dollars were struck to commemorate Dwight D. Eisenhower, who died in 1969, and the Apollo 11 moon landing of the same year. It was minted for only a seven year period. The coins were often saved as mementos of Eisenhower and never saw much circulation outside of casinos. Special Bicentennial issues were minted in 1975 and 1976.

-The First Man on the Moon stamp was the first large size commemorative stamp. The master die to this stamp accompanied the astronauts all the way to the moon's surface.

This informative, surprising volume is the first and definitive history of a unique institution, written to appeal to the general reader with an interest in Royal history, as well as to those with a specialist's enthusiasm for the most collected commodity in the world. The book's publication will coincide with the inauguration of a major stamp exhibition at the Smithsonian Museum, Washington, DC.
