Description


Alan Bean's flown sterling silver Apollo 16 Robbins medal, approximately 1.25″ in diameter, with a raised design of the Apollo 16 mission insignia on the face and engraved on the reverse with the launch date of April 16, 1972, moon landing date of April 20, 1972, and return date of April 27, 1972. The medal is serial numbered “82” on the rim, and includes its original matching case. Condition is mint state. Accompanied by a lengthy handwritten and flight-certified letter of provenance from Bean, in full: "I hereby certify that this silver Apollo 16 Robbins medallion, #82 flew to the moon with the Apollo 16 crew in April 1972. This medallion was transfered [sic] to their lunar module which landed in the Descartes region of the moon on April 20, 1972. It remained inside the 'Orion' until liftoff on April 23rd. This silver Apollo 16 medallion has been in my personal collection since it was given to me by the Apollo 16 crew after their return to Earth." This is the second scarcest medallion in the Robbins Series, with just 98 that were flown. In the hierarchy of desirability, a flown Robbins Medallion from the collection of a moonwalker, personally gifted by the members of its original mission crew, is of the utmost rarity and desirability.
