2020 Silver Eagles Signed by the Youngest to Ever Walk the Moon!
Touching down on the lunar highlands as part of the Apollo 16 mission at the age of 36, Charles “Charlie” Duke is still the youngest person to ever walk on the surface of the moon. From Eagle Scout to valedictorian to United States Air Force officer to test pilot, the stars made the perfect next stop for Charlie. In fact, not only was he the tenth man in history to set foot on the moon, he also served as CAPCOM (Capsule Communicator) for the landmark Apollo 11 mission in 1969. Serving as the central point of communication between Mission Control and the three-man crew, Duke's voice helped guide astronauts and spectators alike as Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin made their momentous journey.
Now, with the 50th anniversary of that first moon landing still fresh in our minds, we’ve teamed up with Charlie Duke to add his mark to these 2020 One-Ounce Silver Eagles. That’s right, each sumptuous silver dollar includes a label that has been personally hand-signed by Apollo Astronaut Charlie Duke!
What’s more, each coin has been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in flawless Mint State-70 (MS70) condition, a distinction that means your perfectly-graded coin will have ZERO imperfections – showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended. Each will also come sonically sealed in an acrylic holder with a special black display core.
In addition, NGC has certified that these Charlie Duke-signed Silver Eagles are First Releases (FR) coins, a designation that means these Silver Eagles were received by NGC or an NGC-approved depository within the first 30 days of their release. Collectors seek out these coins because they are produced with new dies and recognized as having sharper strikes and deeper mirrors than those that are struck later. Also, the population of coins labeled First Releases is only a fraction of the total mintage.
Don’t miss out on owning this collector favorite with a label signed by a true American hero. Blast off for yours today!
