These are the Apollo 11 50th Anniversary 2019 coins available from the US Mint. They're available at a variety of price points from $31 for an uncirculated half dollar, $60 for a proof silver dollar, $230 for a five ounce proof silver dollar, all the way up to $463 for a uncirculated $5 gold coin. They all feature a moon bootprint on the lunar surface on the coin's obverse, and the classic 'Buzz Aldrin on the moon' photo on the reverse. I just bought the cheapest one available with the hopes it bring me scratch-off riches that *flips down cool guy astronaut visor* out of this world. "You've gotta lay off the scratchers, GW." I can't, I did the math and they're my only shot out of this life.

Keep going for a closeup of the front and back.

Thanks to Matt L, who agrees that's a lucky coin if there ever was one.
