Why purchase this commemorative 2020 Apollo 13 Robbins Medal Restrike?
This stunning antiqued medal is issued in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of NASA's Apollo 13 space mission. For each manned space mission since Apollo 7, astronauts have carried specially designed Robbins medallions on their journey, which were engraved with significant mission dates upon their return. It is well known that the Apollo 13 mission did not go as planned, first with the crew change just three days before launch, followed by the spacecraft malfunction that resulted in the aborted moon landing. When the crew safely returned to earth, the space-flown Robbins medals were melted and re-struck with the proper crew names and dates. A product of the Sunshine Mint, this Apollo 13 Robbins Medal Restrike replica contains 2 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver, with an antiquing wash composed of space-flown material. Mintage is limited to only 1,000.
Design Inspired by the Apollo 13 Mission Patch
The obverse features an ultra-high relief design, depicting the three horses of the Sun God Apollo circling the moon. Inscribed "APOLLO XIII" and "EX LUNA, SCIENTIA," Latin for "From the Moon, Knowledge."
Apollo 13's dates of launch and return are inscribed on the reverse, with "AQUARIUS-ODYSSEY" at the center and the anniversary dates "1970-2020" below. The astronauts' names encircle the design.
