Description


Historic and rare unflown Apollo 11 Robbins Medal, approximately 1-inch diameter, with a raised design on the face of the Apollo 11 mission insignia. The reverse of the sterling silver medal is unengraved, except for the serial number “164.” Normal condition.

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. This scarce item is different in that it is one of only nine known to exist. Apollo 11 astronaut Michael Collins has reported that nine medallions had gone missing from his personal effects prior to launch. They showed up decades later in the estate of a woman who had been a janitor at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. An unbelievable scarce Apollo 11 artifact with a storied past, actually more difficult to find than one of the flown medallions. RRAuction COA.
