Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission with this 1 oz. Silver Robbins medal with Space Flown Alloy!
Starting with the Apollo 7 mission in 1968, the Robbins Company of Attleboro, Mass. collaborated with astronauts from each mission to create commemorative medallions that would make the journey into space with the NASA astronauts. These medallions were only created for the crew and other members of NASA and the Astronaut Flight Office (AFO). 1969 is the year that NASA's successful Apollo 11 mission landed on the moon and marked the first time man had ever stepped on the moon's surface. Now a commemorative medal has been released in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission, and is a recreation based on the dies used for the original Robbin medals carried by Neil A. Armstrong, Michael Collins and Edwin E. Aldrin, Jr on their incredible voyage to the moon. Not only was this medal adapted from the original dies used to produce the original and historic 1969 medals, but its composition actually contains metal from spacecraft used on the Apollo missions! This metal was carefully filtered of any impurities and included in the antiquing solution that has been carefully hand applied!
Featuring a replica of the original Apollo 11 Robbins Medal Designs
Depicted on the obverse is the original Apollo 11 Robbins medal design: an American bald eagle landing on the moon, clasping an olive branch in its beak. "APOLLO 11" is inscribed in bold letters above the design. Collectors will recognize this famous design as the reverse of both the Eisenhower (1971-1974, 1977-1978) and Susan B. Anthony (1979-1981, 1999) dollars.
The reverse is also a near-complete replica of the back of the original Robbins medals. The design includes the names of the Astronauts, the dates of the launch, lunar landing, and return, and has the addition of "50TH ANNIVERSARY" and "1969-2019."
