Why Choose This MS70 First Day of Issue 2019 Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Silver Plated Medal?

When Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon in 1969, it was a tremendous moment both in the United States and around the world. The medal shown here was minted to honor the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission. It's made of cupronickel and has been plated with silver. It was struck by Sunshine Minting, a private mint in the United States.

Historic Apollo 11 Designs

This medal was inspired by the original 1969 Apollo 11 medals. On the obverse, a bald eagle is depicted as it prepares to land on the surface of the moon. Earth can be seen in the background behind the eagle. This design is very similar to the one used for the Apollo 11 mission patch, and also on both the Eisenhower (1971-1974, 1977-1978) and Susan B. Anthony (1979-1981, 1999) dollars..

The upper portion of the reverse is inscribed with the last names of the Apollo 11 astronauts. The major dates over the course of the mission are at the center of the design. The 50th anniversary dates are also displayed on this side.

NGC MS70 First Day of Issue

This medal received the coveted First Day of Issue designation from the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation. That means it was submitted for grading within 24 hours of its release day. The grade of Mint State 70 means this specimen is completely flawless.
