Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Collection
1oz Silver With Space Flown Alloy Uncirculated Antiqued
Only 25,000 1oz Silver Robbins Medals will ever be struck for worldwide distribution.
Space Flown Alloy:
Each 1oz silver medal includes actual space flown material that has been on an Apollo mission. Sunshine carefully removed any impurities in the space flown material and incorporated the pure material into the antiquing solution which has been carefully hand applied to each medal.
Struck in one ounce of 99.9% silver, this Apollo 11commemorative replicates the original medal’s design with an American Eagle landing on the moon on the obverse. On the reverse you’ll find the three names of the astronauts and the Launched, Landed and Returned dates just like on the original medal. In celebration of this historic event, the engravings of “50th Anniversary” and “1969-2019” have been added to the design. In addition, each silver medal has also been selectively layered with a metal alloy that has actually flown on an Apollo mission!
Each medal will arrive in its own presentation case and accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity and an informative storycard. Coin collectors, history buffs, fans of space and science, and people who enjoy owning pieces of Americana will all be clamoring for this historic medal. And while the limited edition for this piece is just 25,000, the number that will come in this pristine grade and certification is vastly smaller. Order yours now!
NOTE: A portion of the proceeds will benefit charities endorsed by the Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins families.
MEDALS MADE FROM ORIGINAL DIES – These Apollo 11 Fiftieth Anniversary SIlver Medals were made from the original dies used by the Robbins Company to strike an extremely limited number of medallions that traveled aboard the mission. The Robbins Company worked directly with the astronauts to create a medal replicating the mission patch design that featured an American Eagle about to land on the moon with Mother Earth floating above in the background. The medal’s reverse includes the names of the astronauts – Armstrong, Collins and Aldrin – along with the dates of launch, moon landing and return. On the original medals that flew in space, the dates were left blank and were to be engraved upon their return to Earth. In addition, each silver medal has also been selectively layered with a metal alloy that has actually flown on an Apollo mission!
COMMEMORATING MANKIND’S MOST SIGNIFICANT ACCOMPLISHMENT – Humans have always been fascinated by the moon. Once technology caught up with our dreams, the quest to put a man on the moon was no longer a fantasy. Finally, on July 20, 1969, American Astronaut Neil Armstrong descended from the lunar module Eagle and upon setting foot on the moon proclaimed, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”
STRUCK IN HIGHLY-PURE SILVER – Your Apollo 11 Fiftieth Anniversary Commemorative Medal is struck in one ounce of 99.9% silver. You’ll see this silver purity engraved on the medal’s edge where it reads: “1 oz 999 AG.”
EXTREMELY LIMITED EDITION – Just 25,000 of these Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Commemorative One-Ounce Silver Medals will be struck.
EXCLUSIVE RELEASE – To commemorate the 50th anniversary of this monumental event, GovMint has partnered with Neil Armstrong’s son, Mark, to use the original dies to create these Apollo 11 Fiftieth Anniversary Commemorative One-Ounce Silver Medals.
