1969–2019 1-oz Silver Apollo 11 Robbins Medal Commemorative NGC MS70 Antiqued w/Space-Flown Alloy & Charlie Duke Signature
When Apollo 11 Left for the Moon, The Astronauts Didn’t Go Alone
On July 20th, 1969, Neil Armstrong, with help from Michael Collins and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin, became the first human in history to set foot on the lunar surface. The Apollo 11 mission stands as one of mankind’s greatest achievements, but there’s a part of the story that many have never heard – one that’s of keen interest to collectors.
Along with their rations, personal items and various scientific equipment, the Apollo 11 spacecraft carried special medals that were struck by the Robbins Company. A NASA tradition that began with Apollo 7, the medals bore a version of their mission patch design and were struck specifically for that mission’s crew and their families. The reverse displayed the astronaut’s names and the launch, landing and return dates of the mission.
Today, the original Apollo 11 Robbins Medals are incredibly coveted collectibles, with a silver space-flown medal recently realizing more than $112,000 at auction. Each medal is a sentimental and important part of the Apollo 11 story – and with this new collectible, you can add a piece of that story to your own collection – an impressive one-ounce silver commemorative!
Created by digitally scanning original Apollo 11 Robbins Medal dies held by the Armstrong family, these 50th Anniversary Commemoratives feature the exact same design as the originals, modified only to add dual dates of 1969 and 2019 and the words “50th Anniversary.” Every other detail reflects those of the medals that traveled along with Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins as they soared through the cosmos on their way into the history books.
- Plus, each commemorative available in this offer comes encapsulated with an exclusive label signed by Charles “Charlie” Duke, a key member of the Apollo 11 mission. Duke, who not only served as CAPCOM (Capsule Communicator) for the Apollo 11 mission – meaning he was the voice of mission control for the astronauts – later became the youngest person to ever set foot on the moon during the Apollo 16 mission in 1972! It’s an incredible feature to an already highly sought-after collectible that’s sure to send collectors to the moon and back!
The perfect addition to your collection, the One-Ounce Silver Apollo 11 Robbins Medal Commemorative was struck in a full ounce of highly pure 99.9% fine silver and comes graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in flawless Mint State-70 (MS70) condition, a distinction that means your perfectly-graded piece will have ZERO imperfections – showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended. As an added touch, the medal has been antiqued using authentic space-flown alloy that was actually part of an Apollo mission!
Each medal will arrive in its own presentation case and accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity and an informative storycard.

- MEDALS MADE FROM ORIGINAL DIES – These Apollo 11 Commemorative Medals were made from the original dies that the Robbins Company used to strike an extremely limited number of medallions that traveled aboard the mission. The medal replicates the mission patch and depicts 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 – 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.”
