The Summer of 1969 was a landmark moment in the history of humankind. NASA astronauts Michael Collins, Neil Armstrong, and Buzz Aldrin lifted off beyond the boundaries of Earth with the power of Saturn V rockets boosting the Apollo 11 spacecraft toward the heavens. When the men returned from space, two had become the first men to step foot on the surface of the Moon. Today, 2019 11 oz Silver First Man on the Moon Coins are available to you online at Silver.com.

Michael Collins, Neil Armstrong, and Buzz Aldrin made up the crew of the Apollo 11. Collins was the command module pilot and the only one of the three men not to reach the lunar surface. He orbited above while Mission Commander Armstrong and lunar lander pilot Aldrin descended to the lunar surface for 21.5 hours of exploring, research, and testing.
