Description


Flown sterling silver Apollo 16 Robbins medal, approximately 1.5″ 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 “96” on the edge. Condition is mint state. Accompanied by a signed letter of provenance from the mission commander John Young, in full: “I hereby certify that Apollo 16 Robbins Medal, serial number 96, was flown to the moon with me aboard Apollo 16 April 16–27, 1972, and has been a part of my personal collection since the mission.” 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 a member of the crew who flew it, is most desirable—especially one is such beautiful condition.
