Starting with Apollo 7, the Robbins Company of Attleboro, Massachusetts began working with one or more astronauts from each mission to design and strike medallions that would travel aboard their flights into space. Paid for by the crews and available for purchase only by NASA astronauts and members of the Astronaut Flight Office (AFO) support crew, these sterling silver mementos usually had very limited mintages of only 100 to 450 medals per mission. Today, these prized medals sell for tens of thousands of dollars at auction.

The fact that the Robbins medallions actually flew aboard the space missions, were closely associated with the astronauts, and are seldom available and only in restricted quantities make them highly sought-after collectibles on the few times they are available. But now, thanks to GovMint’s standing in the numismatic world, we have been able to partner with Neil Armstrong’s son, Mark, to use the original dies of the historic Apollo 11 Robbins Medals and made new dies to create these commemorative medals celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission!

Struck in five ounces of 99.9% silver, this Apollo 11 commemorative 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. This amazing piece also features a classic antique finish that gives it a timeless look and feel. In addition, each silver medal has also been selectively layered with a metal alloy that has actually flown on an Apollo mission!

Your Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Commemorative Five-Ounce Silver Medal has been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in gorgeous Gem Uncirculated condition, meaning that your medal is the product of a superb strike that places it firmly among the elite of the run. Each medal will arrive in its own presentation case and accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity and an informative story card. 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. Just 5,000 will ever be struck, however, so 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.

  • 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.”
