    Description

    Apollo-Soyuz Test Project Unflown Silver Robbins Medallion, Serial Number 265, Directly from the Family Collection of Astronaut Richard Gordon. This 35mm sterling silver medal, though not flown, was minted to commemorate the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project, the first international manned space effort. During July 17-19, 1975, following three years of preparations, three U.S. astronauts (Thomas Stafford, Vance Brand, and Deke Slayton) and two Soviet cosmonauts (Alexei Leonov and Valery Kubasov) linked an Apollo spacecraft and a Soyuz capsule in Earth orbit. While docked for forty-four hours, the two crews visited each other's ships and conducted joint scientific experiments. The design shows the docking maneuver above the Earth, and the names of the mission and crewmembers. The reverse includes the title "First Joint U.S.-U.S.S.R. Space Flight" and the engraved dates. The serial number is on the rim along with the Robbins and sterling hallmarks. Excellent.
