Why order this 1969-2019 Apollo 11 50th Anniversary 5 oz Silver Robbins Medal with Space Flown Alloy?
Space exploration enthusiasts are sure to love this 50th Anniversary Silver Robbins Medal replica. The medal was issued to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission, which was the first to land a man on the moon. Struck by Sunshine Minting from five ounces of .999 fine silver, this medal replicates the original Apollo 11 medals, which were flown on the mission and were exclusively for those involved in the mission. The Sunshine Mint purified alloy that was flown into space on Apollo missions and incorporated it into the solution that it used to antique the piece. Just 5,000 of these medals were minted.
Patriotic Mission Patch Design
The medal's obverse replicates the design of the mission patch. An eagle lands on the cratered surface of the moon. The patriotic imagery was especially significant at the time of the landing, as it represented a triumph for the United States in the midst of the Cold War. The earth is visible in the distance with Florida, the home of the Kennedy Space Center from which the shuttle launched, at the center. "APOLLO 11" is inscribed at the top.
On the reverse are inscriptions that offer key details about the mission. The names of the astronauts who took part, "ARMSTRONG - COLLINS - ALDRIN" are inscribed along the top, while "50TH ANNIVERSARY" is inscribed just inside them. At the center of this face are the key dates, "LAUNCHED JULY 16, 1969," "LANDED JULY 20, 1969," and "RETURNED JULY 24, 1969." At the bottom are the anniversary dates, "1969-2019."
Exquisite GEM Unc with Exclusive Robbins Label
This medal was certified GEM Brilliant Uncirculated by the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). To receive that certification, a medal must have a sharp strike and no evidence of wear. This certification is provided on a Robbins label, which features an image of the eagle that is on the insignia.
