Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Supermoon 1 oz Silver Antiqued Medal GEM BU
alf a century ago, man accomplished what was thought to be impossible for the vast majority of human history when Neil Armstrong left the lunar module and took his first steps on the moon. Now, you have the chance to hold that moon in the palm of your hand with this Antiqued Supermoon Medal. Struck from one ounce of .999 fine silver at Shire Post Mint, this medal is selenographically correct. It has rounded edges thanks to the fact that it was broadstruck. The color/patina process was done by hand, making each piece unique.
Stunning Supermoon Design
The Earth's tides have slowed the rotation of the moon. As a result, the same side of the moon is always visible from the Earth. The side that is visible, often referred to as "the near side," is on the obverse of this medal, while the far side is on the reverse. The medal's detail gives you the opportunity to explore the moon in the palm of your hand, including Mare Tranquillitatis, also known as the Sea of Tranquility, where Neil Armstrong took man's first steps on the celestial body. The medal's purity, "999 FS" (.999 fine silver), is inscribed on the edge.
