Why Make This First Day of Production MS70 2019 Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Antiqued Silver Plated Medal the Next Addition to Your Collection?
In 1969, the Robbins Company struck a small quantity of medals to mark the Apollo 11 mission. These were only made available to the astronauts and some NASA employees. The medal shown here was struck by Sunshine Minting to mark the 50th anniversary of the mission and it's based on the original. This medal is made of cupronickel and has been plated with silver.
Stunning Apollo 11 Designs
The obverse of this medal shows an eagle as it's about to land on the surface of the moon. Earth can be seen far in the distance. This side is inscribed with "APOLLO 11." The Apollo 11 mission patches displayed a very similar design.
The central portion of the reverse is inscribed with the milestone dates of the mission. The 50th anniversary dates are on the lower portion of the design and the names of the astronauts are on the upper portion.
