Why add this 1969-2019 5 oz Silver Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Robbins Medal with Space Flown Alloy to your collection?

This 5 oz silver medal replicates the medals that the Robbins Company struck for the Apollo 11 mission. The original medals were only for those who were involved in the mission, but this medal is one of several released to mark the 50th anniversary of the historic voyage, which put man on the moon for the first time. This medal was struck by Sunshine Minting from 5 oz of .999 fine silver. The mint purified alloy that was flown aboard an Apollo mission and incorporated the purified metal into the antiquing solution, meaning that alloy that was actually flown in space is part of this medal. Just 5,000 of these medals were minted, so many space enthusiasts will miss out on this unique opportunity to share in the fiftieth anniversary of this historic achievement.

Poignant Apollo 11 Design

The obverse of this medal replicates the original medals, which feature the mission's patch. An eagle with its wings spread lands on the cratered lunar surface. In the distance is the Earth, with Florida, home of the Kennedy Space Center from which Apollo 11 launched, at the center. The name of the mission, "APOLLO 11," is inscribed at the top.

On the reverse are key details about the mission and the event for which the medal was minted. The names of the astronauts on the mission, "ARMSTRONG - COLLINS - ALDRIN" arch along the rim, while "50TH ANNIVERSARY" is included just inside them. At the center of this face are key mission dates: "LAUNCHED JULY 16, 1969," "LANDED JULY 20, 1969," and "RETURNED JULY 24, 1969." Below them are the anniversary dates, "1969-2019."

Perfect MS70 with Exclusive Robbins Label

This medal received Numismatic Guaranty Corporation's (NGC's) highest grade, Mint State 70, which is reserved for pieces that are flawless as seen under 5x magnification. That grade is provided on an exclusive Robbins level, which bears an image of the eagle that appears on the insignia.

Don't miss your chance to own this 5 oz Silver 1969-2019 Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Robbins Medal with Space Flown Alloy.
