Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing with this Silver Robbins 1 oz. Medal struck from Space Flown Alloy!
Beginning with the 1968 Apollo 7 mission, the Robbins Company of Attleboro, Mass. started collaborating with one or several of the astronauts on each mission to create a medallion commemorating their flight into space. The following year, in 1969, for the historic Apollo 11 mission the company created a medallion carried by the flight crew: Neil A. Armstrong, Michael Collins and Edwin E. Aldrin, Jr. These medals commemorated the first steps ever taken on the surface of the moon. Now, fifty years later, the iconic Apollo 11 mission is being celebrated with this 1 oz. silver replica of the original Robbins medal containing actual alloy from spacecraft used on the Apollo missions. The metal has been carefully filtered to remove impurities, and the resulting pure alloy has been added to the antiquing solution that has been carefully applied by hand to each medal.
Featuring a replica of the Original Apollo 11 Robbins Medal
The obverse of the medal features a replica of the original Apollo 11 medal carried by the Astronauts on the moon landing mission. The design features an eagle landing on the moon carrying an olive branch in its beak. Rising above its head is the inscription, "APOLLO 11." Astute collectors will recognize this design from the reverse of both the Eisenhower (1971-1974, 1977-1978) and Susan B. Anthony (1979-1981, 1999) dollar coins.
In a near-complete replica of the back of the original Robbins medals, the reverse features important information on the flight including the names of the astronauts, the dates of the launch, the lunar landing, and return of the spacecraft, and the added commemorative dates of "1969-2019."
