To mark the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, the North American Mint released the Apollo 11 Silver Round Series. These silver round depict various parts of the journey for the crew that was sent to the moon in 1969 by NASA after President John F. Kennedy challenged the organization to do so. Right now, you can purchase the 1 oz Silver Proof-Like Apollo 11 The Crew Round from Provident Metals.
Each of the rounds in this listing have a proof-like finish, which means that they are of similar quality to proof coins. With only 5,000 rounds produced, the mint engraved serial numbers into the edges of each round. To protect these unique rounds, they ship in protective plastic Air-Tite capsules.
The obverse face of these rounds proudly shows off all three crew members from this remarkable mission: Commander Neil Armstrong, Lunar Module Pilot Buzz Aldrin, and Command Module Pilot Michael Collins. Each crew member is shown in left-profile relief, and you can clearly see a footprint on the surface of the moon in the lower left of the round.
The reverse side of every round in this series bears the image of a bald eagle as it comes in for landing on the moon. With outstretched wings, the eagle clutches an olive branch between its talons to symbolize the peaceful moon landing. In the background, you can see Earth in the distance.
The eight-day mission to the moon in July 1969 marked a significant success in the U.S. NASA space program, which was kicked into high gear after the Soviets sent a manned ship into space a few years before.
While Armstrong and Aldrin walked on the moon, Collins stayed behind in the command module as it orbited around the moon. The names of all three men are also engraved into this side of the round.
