Description


Apollo 16 Robbins Medal, approximately 1.25 diameter, with a raised design on the face of the Apollo 16 mission insignia. The reverse of the sterling silver medal is engraved with the April 16, 1972, launch date, April 20, 1972, moon landing date, and April 27, 1972, return date. This medal is not serial numbered along the rim and is not flight flown. Normal condition. This item originated from the collection of Buzz Aldrin and was first sold in 1990 by Superior Galleries.

Made by the Robbins Company of Attleboro, Massachusetts, astronauts who are in line for a flight have the option of purchasing the medallions for themselves, family, and friends as personal souvenirs. The medals are made available only to the astronauts. At the conclusion of a flight, the tokens are sent back to Robbins, where they are engraved on the reverse, polished, numbered, and returned to the astronauts. The dyes are later destroyed. Accompanied by its original presentation case (numbered “61”) and a letter of provenance from noted space enthusiast and specialist Ken Havekotte. RRAuction COA.
