To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission to the Moon, sovereign and private mints around the world issued commemorative bullion items in 2019. Among the collections available was the Apollo 11 Series from the North American Mint. This eight-round series of 1 oz silver pieces followed the crew from takeoff to touchdown on the Moon and back to Earth with splashdown in the South Pacific. Now those designs have been reimagined in gold-plated releases. Provident Metals now has the gold-plated 1 oz Silver Apollo The Crew Round available to you for purchase online.
When you purchase 1 oz Silver Apollo 11 The Crew Rounds through this Provident Metals listing, you receive a product that is brand new from the North American Mint. The original 2019 release of the eight designs came with proof visuals on .999 pure silver rounds. Now, those images are revived with a 24-karat gold layer on the obverse and reverse design elements. The rounds will arrive with an individual protective plastic capsule and a Certificate of Authenticity from the mint.
The obverse of these 1 oz Apollo 11 The Crew Rounds comes with a depiction of all three astronauts from the Apollo 11 crew. These three men were the first human beings to set foot on another planetary body within our solar system, and more importantly, the first to do so and return home safely to Earth. The left-profile portraits on this side represent Michael Collins, Neil Armstrong, and Buzz Aldrin. The portraits of the three astronauts are set behind an image of the lunar surface in which an individual boot print from an astronaut remains imprinted on the Moon. Inscriptions within the design field include 50th Anniversary and 2019. Around the design rim, you will notice inscriptions of the names of the three men.
On the reverse side of 1 oz Silver Apollo 11 The Crew Rounds is an image of the Apollo 11 mission patch. This patch features a bald eagle touching down on the lunar surface with an olive branch in its talons. Earth is visible in the cold openness of space in the background, with inscriptions in the design field that include Apollo 11, 1969, 2019, and 50th Anniversary. Around the design rim are the inscriptions of One Ounce and .999 Fine Silver.
Collins, Aldrin, and Armstrong were in space for just over eight days on the Apollo 11 mission. Of the three, only Aldrin and Armstrong entered the Eagle lunar lander to descend to the surface of the Moon. As Command Module Pilot, Collins remained in lunar orbit within the command module.
