Description

    Apollo 11 Flown Robbins Silver Medallion, obtained by Astronaut Joseph P. Kerwin as a member of the Astronaut Flight Office. This medallion, serial number 140, was flown aboard Apollo 11, the first manned mission to land on the Moon, with crew members Neil Armstrong, Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin, Jr., and Michael Collins during July 18-24, 1969.

    The design (by Collins) includes the name of the mission and a bald eagle holding an olive branch landing on the Moon as the Earth can be seen in the distance. Neil Armstrong's first words broadcast from the Moon to Duke back on Earth were, "Houston, Tranquility Base, the eagle has landed." Duke's reply, "Roger, Tranquility Base, we copy you down. You got a bunch of guys about to turn blue. We are breathing again. Thanks a lot!" was the first voice transmission sent from Earth to another world. The reverse, featuring the surnames of the crew members, is engraved with the dates of the mission, added after the flight. From the collection of Joseph P. Kerwin, M.D., who has included a signed Letter of Certification verifying its provenance.
