Why purchase this GEM Uncirculated commemorative 1969-2019 Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Robbins Medal?
This impressive medal is issued in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of one of NASA's most famed space missions: the Apollo 11 journey of astronauts Neil A. Armstrong, Michael Collins and Edwin E. "Buzz" Aldrin, Jr. to the moon, and mankind's first steps upon its surface. Based upon the mission patch designed by the astronauts, the medal's imagery duplicates that of the sterling silver Robbins Medal carried by the astronauts on their voyage. Struck by the Sunshine Mint with an antiqued finish, this 1 oz. copper medallion measures 39 mm in diameter.
Dramatic Eagle Landing Design
An eagle grasping an olive branch in its beak is depicted on the obverse, descending towards the moon's cratered surface, with the earth in the background and "APOLLO 11" inscribed above. The reverse is inscribed with the critical dates of the mission, surrounded by the astronaut's names, "50TH ANNIVERSARY" and "1969-2019."
