Why buy this Antiqued 1969-2019 5 oz Silver Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Robbins Medal with Space Flown Alloy?
Featuring the same designs as the original Robbins Company medals that were flown on the Apollo 11 mission, this 50th anniversary medal is a must-have not just for space enthusiasts but for every patriotic American collector. The medal was struck at Sunshine Minting from 5 oz. of .999 fine silver. It was antiqued by hand with a solution that includes alloy that was flown into space in an Apollo mission, putting a piece of the US space program in the collector's hand!
Poignant Mission Patch Design
The moon landing was a major victory for the United States during the heart of the Cold War. That makes the mission patch image of an eagle landing on the lunar surface especially poignant, as it represented a triumph not just for the human race but also for the United States. The earth is visible in the background, nearly 240,000 miles away. Florida, home of the Kennedy Space Center from which the mission launched, is at the center. The mission's name, "APOLLO 11," is inscribed at the top.
Essential information about the mission is spread throughout the reverse. At the center are key dates for the mission: "LAUNCHED JULY 16, 1969," "LANDED JULY 20, 1969," and "RETURNED JULY 24, 1969." Below them are the anniversary dates, "1969-2019." The names of the men who were aboard the mission, "ARMSTRONG - COLLINS - ALDRIN," are inscribed along the rim, and the words "50TH ANNIVERSARY" are included just inside them.
