Apollo 11 Moon Landing 1 oz Silver - Mason Mint (.999 Pure)
This proof-quality silver round combines a beautiful design with 1 troy ounce of pure silver. It also commemorates one of the greatest accomplishments in the history of not just the United States but humanity as a whole: the first Moon landing. Each round is struck from .999 fine silver.
The front side of the round provides a view from the Moon, with the Earth visible off in the distance. The stylized text at the top reads "APOLLO 11" with the date of the landing "JULY 20, 1969" just below. One of the astronaut's boots are shown walking across the lunar surface. Next to his footprints, the famous quote from Neil Armstrong reads, "ONE SMALL STEP FOR A MAN, ONE GIANT LEAP FOR MANKIND."
The back side of the round shows President John F. Kennedy, who very publicly announced the U.S. commitment to reach the moon before the end of the 1960s, gazing skyward on the right side of the design. The Moon and stars are shown behind him, while a shuttle is shown launching from the earth. The round's weight and purity specifications are found inscribed along the bottom rim, reading "1 TROY OUNCE .999 FINE SILVER."
Both sides of the design use an eye-appealing proof finish, meaning that the relief devices are lightly frosted to stand out against beautiful mirrored fields.
