Coin World reports in its March 10, 2014 issue that the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee has proposed a coin to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 in 2019.
...the CCAC voted unanimously to suggest in its annual report that the 50th anniversary of the 1969 Moon Landing by Apollo 11 astronauts should be marked with a commemorative coin in 2019.

That recommendation will go to Congress, which legislatively decides what commemorative coins the Mint should issue.
