Description


Flown 1912 United States $2.5 Indian Head Quarter Eagle gold coin carried aboard Gemini 4 by James McDivitt. Encapsulated in a plastic NGC holder and graded AU58. Accompanied a certificate of authenticity from Novaspace signed by McDivitt, in full: “I certify that this 1912 $2.50 gold coin [was] flown by me aboard Gemini IV in 1965. It is from my personal collection and recently presented to Novaspace for dispersal to collectors of artifacts from the great 'space race' and the golden era of space exploration.” When McDivitt was chosen as command pilot of Gemini 4, he became the first US astronaut to command his initial space flight. An incredible piece that combines the collectible worlds of space and numismatics. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
