DescriptionApollo 11 Flown Robbins Silver Medallion, Serial Number 188, from the collection of astronaut Charles M. Duke, Jr. 25mm, with the mission dates engraved on the reverse, encased in a Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) acrylic slab and graded MS 67. This medallion 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. Charles M. Duke served on the Mission Control Team as Capsule Communicator (CAPCOM).
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 features the surnames of the crew members and the engraved dates. From the collection of Charles M. Duke, Jr., who has included a handwritten and signed Letter of Certification verifying its provenance.
