    Description

    Apollo 12 Flown Robbins Sterling Silver Medallion, obtained by Astronaut Joseph P. Kerwin as a member of the Astronaut Flight Office. The 32 mm medal, with the serial number 195, was flown aboard Apollo 12, the sixth manned mission in the Apollo program and the second to land on the Moon. The three-man crew consisted of Pete Conrad, commander; Richard Gordon, command module pilot Alan Bean, lunar module pilot John W. Young, Commander; Thomas K. (Ken) Mattingly Jr., Command Module Pilot; and Charles Duke Jr., Lunar Module Pilot. The medallion shows the crew's Navy background. It features a clipper ship arriving at the moon. The ship trails fire and flies the flag of the United States. The mission name APOLLO XII and the crew names are on a wide border.

    The medallion has four stars on it - one each for the three astronauts who flew the mission and one for Clifton Williams. Williams was killed on October 5, 1967, after a mechanical failure caused the controls of his T-38 trainer to stop responding. He had been assigned to the back-up crew for what would be the Apollo 9 mission and would have most likely been assigned as Lunar Module pilot for Apollo 12. The reverse has the dates of the mission and the number. From the collection of Joseph P. Kerwin, M.D., who has included a signed Letter of Certification verifying its provenance.
