Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Commemorative Coin

Garret's submission for the  Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Commemorative Coin Obverse Design Competition



Hello,
I want to thank you again for your participation in our Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Commemorative Coin Obverse Design Competition.  The jury has completed their evaluations and the Secretary of the Treasury has approved the final obverse design.  We were very impressed with the caliber of all of the submitted designs and the work that went into developing an obverse for these very special curved coins.  The competition was quite strong, and unfortunately, your design was not ultimately selected for the program. 

The winning obverse design will be unveiled in 2018 in coordination with the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum, the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation, and the Astronauts Memorial Foundation.
We highly encourage you to enter any future competitions hosted by the United States Mint.  We will be sure to email you regarding our next competition, and you can always remain up-to-date on all current competitions by visiting www.usmint.gov/competition.

Best wishes, 

United States Mint
Office of Design Management

 A mother has her hands full in this Everyday Movies panel from November 18, 1924. As she deals with her kids and household chores, the radio announcer is saying, "Baby has now had his bath, his food and orange juice and is safely tucked in on the sleeping porch." Sleeping porch, indeed!
