DescriptionApollo-Soyuz Unflown Robbins Silver Medallion, Serial Number 232, from the collection of astronaut Charles M. Duke, Jr. 35mm, with the mission dates engraved on the reverse, in original issue plastic box. This medallion, though not flown, was made 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 44 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 crew members. The reverse includes the title "First Joint U.S.-U.S.S.R. Space Flight" and the engraved dates.
This medallion comes complete with a signed Letter of Certification from Charles M. Duke, Jr. From the personal collection of Charles M. Duke, Jr.
