The total duration of the Apollo 11 mission was 8 days, 3 hours, 18 minutes, and 35 seconds. On July 16, 1969, the Apollo 11 spacecraft lifted off from Merritt Island, Florida under the power of Saturn V rockets. Four days later, the Eagle landing module would approach the surface of the moon for mankinds first-ever touchdown on a foreign celestial body.
Commander Neil Armstrong and Lunar Module Pilot Buzz Aldrin were the only two men in the three-man crew to set foot on the surface of the moon. The duo spent a total of 21.5 hours on the surface of the moon, not stepping out of the lander until 6 hours after landing on the moon. When the time came, Neil Armstrong was the first man to take steps on the moon.
The obverse of 1 oz Apollo 11 One Small Step Silver Rounds includes the image of Armstrong as he carefully descends the ladder from the Eagle landing module onto the surface of the moon. His famous words spoken to the world watching from below via television feed are engraved around the edge: Thats One Small Step for Man, One Giant Leap for Mankind.
On the reverse of Apollo 11 One Small Step Silver Rounds is the image of an American bald eagle as it lands on the surface of the moon. This design is based upon the mission patch. The lunar module was known as the Eagle, so it was fitting to use the American bald eagle with an olive branch in its talons as a symbol for the patch. This design includes the eagle along with the moons surface and Earth set taking place in the background as the Earth disappears from view on this side of the moon.
