USPS debuts stamp honoring Apollo 30th

July 18, 1999 — With the help of Apollo 17 astronaut Eugene Cernan, the United States Postal Service (USPS) unveiled a new postage stamp today in honor of the 30th anniversary of the Apollo Moon landings.

The stamp, which was designed by Carl Herrman, is part of the Celebrate The Century series, 150 commemorative stamps available on 10 panes honoring each decade of the 20th Century. The "Man Walks on the Moon" stamp was selected by the public during nationwide balloting in May 1998 as one of 15 commemorative stamps saluting the 1960s.

The stamps will be issued September 17, 1999, in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
