    Gemini 9A Flown Gilt over Silver Fliteline Medallion Originally from the Personal Collection of Astronaut Jack Swigert, with LOA. This 25mm x 19mm shield-shaped sterling silver medal has the mission insignia on the front which depicts the Gemini spacecraft in rendezvous with an Agena Target Vehicle and a tethered astronaut forming the figure "9", all in front of a large Roman numeral "IX".
