Description


Historic and very scarce flown Apollo 17 Robbins Medal, approximately 1.5 diameter, with a raised design on the face of the Apollo 17 mission insignia. The reverse of the sterling silver medal is engraved “America-Challenger Apollo XVII—The Beginning” along with the December 6, 1972, launch date; December 11, 1972, moon landing date; and December 19, 1972, return date. This medal is serial numbered “72.” Condition is mint state. Encapsulated in a plastic NGC holder and graded MS65. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Apollo XVII commander Gene Cernan which states, “I hereby certify that silver Apollo VXII Robbins medallion, serial #72, was flown to the moon and remained in lunar orbit aboard the Command Module ‘America’ during the mission December 7-19, 1972.” The fact that most of Cernan’s personal Apollo 17 flown medallions were stolen, renders this piece even rarer. Perhaps the most sought after and difficult-to-acquire of all the Apollo flown medals, with a fantastic tie-in between the last man to have walked on the moon and his own mission, being just the second flown medal offered by a member of the mission’s crew. RR Auction COA.
