Why Add This GEM Unc 2019 Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Copper Medal to Your Collection?
The moon landing in 1969 is still among the most significant events in United States history. It came as a result of the Apollo 11 mission and Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon. The antiqued copper medal shown here was struck to honor the 50th anniversary of this event. It was minted by a private mint in the U.S., Sunshine Minting.
Inspiring Apollo 11 Design
On the obverse, a bald eagle can be seen just above the surface of the moon. In the background Earth is depicted far in the distance. This medal was inspired by the original Robbins medals that were created for the mission in 1969. The obverse design is very similar to the Apollo 11 mission patch.
The reverse displays many inscriptions about the mission. The last names of the astronauts are on this side. The major dates of the mission are inscribed on the center of the design and the 50th anniversary dates are at the bottom.
NGC GEM Unc
To have this medal graded and encapsulated, it was submitted to the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation. It received the grade of GEM Uncirculated. That means this specimen still looks like it just left the Mint.
