1969-2019 Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Silver Medal. Robbins Medal Restrike. 50 Ounces. MS-70 NGC.

Hand-signed by astronaut Michael Collins , the second man to walk on the moon on the historic flight of Apollo 11 in July 1969. Made from material carried on Apollo 11 , and historically important. The obverse features flight data and the names of Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Buzz Aldrin, while the reverse design is based on Frank Gasparo’s eagle landing on the moon theme in the Eisenhower dollar style. The Earth in the eagle’s background is gold, sharply struck, and contrasts nicely with the silver surroundings. The Robbins medals began in 1967 when astronauts carried several on their flight; it is now a tradition. Along with the three gold medals carried into space, one by each astronaut, some 400 or slightly more silver pieces were carried aboard Apollo 11, and this piece is made from a blend of silver from those pieces carried 51 years ago. Certainly, this hefty piece is one of the heaviest and largest medals we’ve handled in recent memory, and at 50 ounces, the intrinsic value alone is substantial. We imagine this unusual piece will appeal to space aficionados as well as medal collectors, and we can’t wait to see the results.
