DescriptionGemini 12 Flown Fliteline Gold Plated Medal, obtained by Astronaut Joseph P. Kerwin as a member of the Astronaut Flight Office. The 25mm medal was flown aboard Gemini 12 demonstrated that an astronaut could work easily and efficiently outside the spacecraft. The crew members were Buzz Aldrin and James Lovell. The flight took place between November 11-15, 1966.
On the obverse of the medal, the Roman numeral XII is located at the 12 o'clock position on the face of a clock, with the Gemini spacecraft pointing to it like the hour hand of a clock. This represents the position of Gemini 12 as the last flight of the Gemini program. With the Apollo project following this last flight of the Gemini program, the ultimate objective -- the moon -- is symbolized by the crescent on the left. The reverse has the dates of the flight and the mission designation. The reverse also has some discoloration due to packing residue. From the collection of Joseph P. Kerwin, M.D., who has included a signed Letter of Certification verifying its provenance.
