Why purchase this First Day of Issue commemorative 1969-2019 Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Robbins Medal?
Since NASA's Apollo 7 mission in 1968, Robbins Medals have been produced for, and flown on, every U.S. manned space flight, designed exclusively for each voyage. This 1 oz. antiqued copper medallion struck by the Sunshine Mint in honor of the 50th Anniversary of the historic Apollo 11 journey, and man's first small steps on the moon, replicates the medal carried by astronauts Neil A. Armstrong, Michael Collins and Edwin E. "Buzz" Aldrin, Jr.
Magnificent Eagle Design
An eagle in flight is depicted on the obverse, with an olive branch in its beak, moments before landing on the cratered surface of the moon. A view of the earth as seen from the moon appears above, along with the inscription "APOLLO 11."
Apollo 11's dates of launch, landing and return are inscribed on the reverse, encircled by the astronaut's names "ARMSTRONG-COLLINS-ALDRIN," "50th ANNIVERSARY" and "1969-2019."
