Description


Flown sterling silver Apollo 12 Robbins medal, approximately 1.25″ in diameter, with a raised design of the Apollo 12 mission insignia on the face and engraved on the reverse with the launch date of November 14, 1969, moon landing date of November 19, 1969, and return date of November 24, 1969. The medal is serial numbered “261” and includes its original matching case, with a label on the bottom annotated in Bean’s hand, “Apollo 12, Silver, #261, Flown.” Condition is mint state. From the personal collection of Alan Bean. Accompanied by a lengthy handwritten and flight-certified letter of provenance from Bean, in full: “I hereby certify that the Apollo 12 silver Robbins medal, serial number 261 traveled to the moon, remained in lunar orbit some 89 hours and returned to Earth on November 24, 1969. Pete Conrad, Dick Gordon and I had the adventure of a lifetime as the crew of the second lunar landing mission. This medal has been in my personal collection since our return to Earth.” Only 262 of the Apollo 12 medallions were produced, making this the second-to-last example.
