Impressive collection of twenty-five identical Apollo 11 Manned Flight Awareness medals, each measuring approximately 1.25″ in diameter, minted using flown metal from the spacecraft. The medallion depicts Buzz Aldrin on the lunar surface on one side, with the other side reading: “This Medallion contains metal from spacecrafts Columbia and Eagle, that took Astronauts Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins on their historic Apollo 11 mission that resulted in the first landing of man on the Moon.” Nine of the medallions are in their original cases with blue or white mats which read, “Apollo 11 Medallion, For your contribution to the United States Space Program.” Also includes one blank certificate to be awarded along with a medal. In very good to fine condition. These sought-after medallions rarely appear in such a large quantity.
