Why purchase this perfectly struck 1969-2019 Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Robbins Medal Set?
2019 marks the 50th Anniversary of NASA's Apollo 11 mission and mankind's first "small steps" and "giant leaps" on the surface of the moon. Design of the three medals in this commemorative set replicates the sterling silver Robbins medals carried by astronauts Neil A. Armstrong, Michael Collins and Edwin E. "Buzz" Aldrin, Jr. on their history-making journey. Robbins medals have accompanied each manned U.S. space mission since Apollo 7. This set includes three 39 mm diameter medals produced by the Sunshine Mint: a copper and silver plated copper medallion, each with an antiqued finish, and a 1 oz. .999 fine silver matte proof medal layered with authentic space flown material from an Apollo mission! This historic material has been filtered and included in the antiquing solution that has been carefully applied by hand!
Patriotic Eagle Design
An eagle holding an olive branch in its beak while landing on the moon is depicted on each obverse, with "APOLLO 11" curving above. Reverses are inscribed with the astronaut's names and mission dates, with "50TH ANNIVERSARY" and "1969-2019."
Impeccable Mint State 70 Set
Each of the three medals in this 1969-2019 Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Robbins Medal set has been professionally graded by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) and determined to be in flawless Mint State 70 condition. The distinctive replica medals are presented individually encapsulated in labeled NGC protective holders.
