Description

    Apollo 7 Robbins Sterling Silver Restrike Medallion. The 32 mm medal, with the serial number 288, was one of 45 medallions commissioned by Astronaut Walter Cunningham in the 1970s and struck by the Robbins Company from the original dies. The original medallions were numbered 1 to 255. The additional medals continued the sequence to 300.
    Apollo 7, the first manned mission in the Apollo program to be launched. It was an eleven-day Earth-orbital mission, the first manned launch of the Saturn IB launch vehicle, and the first three-man American space mission. The crew consisted of Walter M. Schirra, Donn F. Eisele, and Walter Cunningham. The obverse of the medal shows a command and service module with its SPS engine firing, the trail from that fire encircling a globe and extending out symbolizing the Earth-orbital nature of the mission. The Roman numeral VII appears in the South Pacific Ocean and the crew's names appears on a wide arc at the bottom. The reverse has the dates of the mission and the number. From the collection of Walter Cunningham, who has included a signed Letter of Certification verifying its provenance.
