The North American Mint decided to celebrate the 50th anniversary of NASAs mission to the moon with the eight-round Apollo 11 Series. This mission was the fifth manned expedition to space and the first mission that landed humans on another celestial body in our solar system. Currently, you can purchase the 1 oz Silver Proof-Like Apollo 11 Moment of Silence Rounds from Provident Metals.
Each of the rounds in the series ship to your home in protective Air-Tite capsules to protect the silver. All of these coins have individual series numbers engraved onto the edges. These proof-like rounds have frosted design elements with mirrored backgrounds.
The obverse of each round you will see Buzz Aldrin in a spacesuit. He is standing in the area of the moon that is known as the Sea of Tranquility; the area looks completely barren. You can see Earth in the background. The engravings on this side of the round include Aldrins request as he stood on the surface of the moon: I Would Like to Request a Few Moments of Silence.
The reverse of every coin in the Apollo 11 Series includes the image of a bald eagle landing on the moon. The eagle has an olive branch in its talons, and its wings are outstretched.
Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong are two of the most famous astronauts in history. They are also the first two people to ever set foot on the moon. Just six hours after landing on the surface of the moon, Armstrong lest the landing module and took the first steps in space. Both Aldrin and Armstrong would spend over 21 hours on the moon.
