    Description

    Apollo 15 Flown Robbins Silver Medallion, obtained by Astronaut Joseph P. Kerwin as a member of the Astronaut Flight Office. This medallion, serial number 71, was flown July 26-August 7, 1971, aboard Apollo 15, the fourth mission to land on the moon. The flight crew consisted of Alfred Worden, James Irwin, and David Scott, who drove the Lunar Rover, which was used on the moon for the first time.

    The design features three birds flying over the Hadley Rille section of the moon, and a line of craters form the Roman numeral "XV." The reverse includes the mission dates and the quote "Man's flight through life is sustained by the power of his knowledge." From the collection of Joseph P. Kerwin, M.D., who has included a signed Letter of Certification verifying its provenance.
