    Description

    Apollo 14 Flown Franklin Mint Silver Medallion, Serial Number 127, from the collection of astronaut Edgar Mitchell. 35mm, with the mission dates engraved on the reverse. This medallion was flown aboard Apollo 14, the third manned lunar landing, with crew members Alan Shepard, Stuart Roosa, and Edgar Mitchell during January 31-February 9, 1971. The medallion was carried into lunar orbit aboard the Command Module Kittyhawk. Roosa piloted the CM, while Mitchell, who served as pilot of the Lunar Module Antares, and Shepard explored the "Fra Mauro" formation, which had been the intended destination for the aborted Apollo 13 mission.

    The design features the "Astronaut Pin," given to veterans of their first space flight, being launched from the Earth to the moon, plus the surnames of the crew members. The reverse features the lunar surface and the names of the mission's spacecraft and destination.

    The medallion comes complete with a handwritten Letter of Certification from Edgar Mitchell. From the personal collection of Dr. Edgar Mitchell.
