DescriptionApollo 8 Flown Robbins Sterling Silver Medallion, obtained by Astronaut Joseph P. Kerwin as a member of the Astronaut Flight Office. The 38 mm medal, with the serial number 241, was flown aboard Apollo 8, the first manned voyage to a celestial body. Its three-man crew of Mission Commander Frank Borman, Command Module Pilot James Lovell and Lunar Module Pilot William Anders, became the first humans to escape Earth's gravity and see the far side of the Moon.
The triangular medal shape of the medal symbolizes the shape of the Apollo command module. The obverse shows a figure 8 looping around the earth and moon representing the mission number as well as the circumlunar nature of the mission. On the number 8 are the names of the three astronauts. The reverse has the dates of the mission and the number. From the collection of Joseph P. Kerwin, M.D., who has included a signed Letter of Certification verifying its provenance.
