Description


Historic flown sterling silver Apollo 11 Robbins medal, approximately 1.25″ diameter, with the face featuring an early design of the iconic Apollo 11 mission insignia raised in high relief, showing the eagle carrying the olive branch in its beak. The reverse bears the last names of astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins, and is engraved with the launch date of July 16, 1969, moon landing date of July 20, 1969, and return date of July 24, 1969. The medal is serial numbered "295." Encapsulated and graded by NGC as "MS 66," with the label noting the provenance, "Ex. Michael Collins-Jerry Ross."

Accompanied by a typed letter of provenance signed by Apollo 11 Command Module Pilot Michael Collins, in full: "Regarding Apollo 11 silver Robbins Medallion, serial number 295, I can certify and confirm that it was flown aboard the Apollo 11 mission to the Moon July 16-24, 1969. The medallion was originally part of my personal collection before giving it to Jerry Ross." Also includes a handwritten letter of provenance signed by Space Shuttle astronaut Jerry Ross, who flew on seven STS missions, in part: "I obtained this medallion from Apollo 11 Command Module Pilot Michael Collins in the early 1980s. He had asked the Astronaut Office to make it available to any interested astronaut. The medallion has been a part of my personal collection of space artifacts since I received it from Michael Collins." A superb and beautiful example of the most sought-after Robbins medallion, enhanced by its dual-certification by two distinguished astronauts.
