Apollo 11 Robbins medal restrike created for the 50th anniversary of the mission, struck from one ounce of silver containing space-flown material, and encapsulated by NGC with an authentic Charlie Duke signature on the label. The 38 mm medal features the same design as the original Robbins medallion: the face featuring an early design of the iconic Apollo 11 mission insignia raised in high relief, showing the eagle carrying the olive branch in its beak. The reverse bears the last names of astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins, and is engraved with the launch date of July 16, 1969; moon landing date of July 20, 1969; and return date of July 24, 1969, along with the anniversary dates, "1969-2019." Encapsulated and graded by NGC as "MS 70." Also included is a 1-oz copper restrike of the Apollo 11 Robbins medal, encapsulated and graded by NGC as “GEM Uncirculated.”
