DescriptionApollo 16 Flown Robbins Sterling Silver Medallion, obtained by Astronaut Joseph P. Kerwin as a member of the Astronaut Flight Office. The 35mm medal, with the serial number 75, was flown aboard Apollo 16, the tenth manned mission in the Apollo program and the fifth mission to land on the Moon, the first to land in the highlands area. The three-man crew consisted of John W. Young, Commander; Thomas K. (Ken) Mattingly Jr., Command Module Pilot; and Charles Duke Jr., Lunar Module Pilot.
The medallion has an eagle with wings outstretched, perched atop a striped shield, over a lunar surface. The vector symbol from the NASA logo was placed on top of the shield, and then across the shield were written the words APOLLO 16. It is bordered with a band carrying 16 stars and the crew names. The reverse has the dates of the mission. The number is on the rim. From the collection of Joseph P. Kerwin, M.D., who has included a signed Letter of Certification verifying its provenance.
