    Description

    Buzz Aldrin's 1923-S Peace Silver Dollar Flown on the Moon Mission Aboard Apollo 11. This historic peace silver dollar flew to the moon with Buzz Aldrin on Apollo 11 as part of his Personal Preference Kit (PPK). The coin, minted forty years before Dr. Aldrin was selected as part of the third group of NASA astronauts in October 1963, must surely be one of the rarest peace dollars in existence. How many collectors can point to a 1923-S Peace Dollar that has been to the moon? The coin has been encapsulated (slabbed) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) with the following wording: "1923 S S$1 / Flown On The Moon Mission / Apollo 11 - July 16-24, 1969 / Dr. Buzz Aldrin". From the personal collection of Dr. Buzz Aldrin and accompanied by a signed Letter of Authenticity from him.
