Why Choose This MS70 First Day of Issue 2019 Apollo 11 50th Anniversary 1 oz. Silver Medal with Space Flown Alloy?

In 1969 the Robbins Company was commissioned to produce medals for the Apollo 11 mission. The medal shown here was struck by Sunshine Minting to mark the 50th anniversary of the mission. The specimen offered here actually includes alloy that has been in space on an Apollo mission! Originally part of a spacecraft, any impurities in the metal have been removed and the pure material has been incorporated into the antiquing solution, which has been hand applied to each medal. Mintage of this medal is quite limited.

Recreation of Apollo 11 Robbins Medals

The designs on this medal are based on the original Apollo 11 Robbins medals. The design on the obverse was based on the Apollo 11 mission patch. A bald eagle is pictured just over the surface of the moon. This design also appears on the reverses of both the Eisenhower (1971-1974, 1977-1978) and Susan B. Anthony (1979-1981, 1999) dollars.

The reverse is inscribed with the names of the astronauts who were chosen for Apollo 11. The central portion of the design shows the dates of the launch, lunar landing, and return.

MS70 First Day of Issue

Since this medal was submitted to the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation within 24 hours of its official release day, it received the coveted First Day of Issue designation. For its perfect condition, it was awarded the unbeatable grade of MS70.

Piece of history
I received my coin last week. Aside from the history value of this special coin, the finish is beautiful as is the strike. Fine addition to any collection.
