    Soviet Venera 8 and Venera 12: Medals from Two Landings on Venus. Two handsome medals commemorating two unmanned missions to the planet Venus, as follows.
    Venera (Venus) 8: A 2.25" x 2.125" (overall) pentagonal-shaped medal featuring a high-relief image of the spacecraft labeled beneath "ВЕНЕРА-8 1972". The reverse features the Soviet State Emblem with red enamel surrounding. This was the first robotic space probe to conduct a successful landing on the surface of Venus.
    Venera (Venus) 12: A 2" x 1.875" (overall) pentagon surrounding a 1.5" diameter round design picturing the spacecraft labeled beneath "ВЕНЕРА-12 1978". The reverse features the Soviet State Emblem in high relief.
    Uncommon. Both excellent.
