SilverTowne Apollo 11 Silver 1 oz Round
The Eagle has landed, and it is certainly a beautiful sight! New from SilverTowne Mint, you will be greatly surprised by the fine detail displayed on this SilverTowne Apollo 11 Silver 1 oz Round. 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of one of the most astounding high-water marks of space exploration ‑ mankind’s first manned moon landing and successful return to earth. Apollo 11 was popularly referred to as the Manned Lunar Mission. It is impossible to comprehend all that was required to achieve such a stunning mission.
The Day Eagle Landed
The day was July 20, 1969. It was as though the world stood still, waiting to hear that startling news sent by Mission Commander, Neil Armstrong, from inside the lunar lander module, Eagle, “Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed.” As Commander Neil Armstrong climbed down to the surface, he became the first human to walk on the moon. Upon that first step he spoke one of the most memorable messages ever recorded, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”
It is fitting that we memorialize these high-water marks in our leaps forward. We now have reached the half-century mark of the amazingly difficult achievement of Commander, Neil Armstrong, Command Module Pilot, Michael Collins, and Lunar Module Pilot, Buzz Aldrine’s successful “Manned Lunar Mission.” And that’s not to mention the thousand+ lead and support teams that together made such a feat even remotely possible.
This very fine SilverTowne Apollo 11 Silver 1 oz Round is truly a stunning commemoration to that breathtaking historic event! The obverse features in the center inset, the Eagle resting upon the moon’s barren surface, with boot prints leading from the descent ladder. Within the rim-band are the inscriptions, “1969 . NASA . 2019 . 999+ FINE SILVER . ONE TROY OUNCE.”
The reverse design displays an incredibly remarkable scene! A highly detailed American bald eagle, descending quickly to the moon’s rough surface with its wings fully spread and talons extended. Grasped firmly within its talons is the olive branch of peace. High upon the horizon hangs the earth, partially eclipsed by the moon’s shadow. Accenting the design is a narrow, fine double line rim-band. Above the eagle is the inscription “APOLLO 11” in large, bold type.
This SilverTowne Apollo 11 Silver 1 oz Round will be a fine addition to your collection of the 50th Anniversary of this truly remarkable historic event. The low price also makes it a perfect gift choice to introduce coin collecting to friends and family!
