ONE OF ONLY 300 MINTED AND FLOWN


Upon their return to Earth on May 26, 1969, Apollo 10 astronauts Tom Stafford (CDR), John Young (CMP), and Gene Cernan (LMP), established the all-time record for the highest speed ever attained by a crewed vehicle — 24,791 nautical miles per hour, making this medallion one of the fastest flown space artifacts in existence. 


John Young's provenance letter reads: "I hereby certify and confirm that Silver Robbins medal, serial number 95, is one that was flown to the Moon aboard the Apollo 16 Command Module, April 16-27 1972. This medal has been part of my personal collection since the mission."
