Description


Rare and historic flown sterling silver Apollo 17 Robbins medal, approximately 1.25″ in diameter, featuring a raised design of the mission insignia on the face. The reverse is encircled with raised text, “America-Challenger, Apollo XVII, The Beginning,” and is engraved with the launch date of December 6, 1972, the moon landing date of December 11, 1972, and the reentry date of December 19, 1972. The medal is serial numbered “F44” on the edge. Condition is mint state. One of the most sought-after and difficult-to-obtain of all the Apollo flown medals, as only eighty were flown on man's final voyage to the moon—the fewest carried on any Apollo mission.

Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by astronaut Ed Gibson, in part: “The Space Medallion that accompanies this Certificate is from my personal collection. It was flown on the Apollo XVII mission. I have been its sole owner, and it has been in my possession since being acquired directly from the mission’s flight crew during the time I was an active astronaut.”
