Why purchase this 2 oz. Antiqued Silver 2020 Apollo 13 Robbins Medal Restrike?
This silver medal is a replica of the Apollo 13 Robbins Medal Restrike, issued in honor of the 50th Anniversary of the famed NASA mission. Robbins medals have been carried by astronauts on all manned flights since Apollo 7, each featuring the mission patch design, with the names of the crew members and important mission dates. The Apollo 13 mission stands out in history for its abandoned moon landing due to an oxygen tank explosion and a crew change mere days before launch. The medals inscribed with the names Lovell, Haise and Mattingly were melted after the astronauts' safe return and re-struck to reflect the actual Apollo 13 crew of Lovell, Haise and Swigert. This replica medal was struck from 2 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver by the Sunshine Mint, and treated with an antiquing solution containing authentic space-flown material. Mintage is limited to just 1,000 pieces.
Stunning Homage to the Sun God Apollo
The ultra-high relief obverse depicts the moon's surface, with the three horses of the Sun God Apollo galloping above. The Latin inscription "EX LUNA, SCIENTIA," meaning "From the Moon, Knowledge," curves below, with "APOLLO XIII" sweeping above.
"AQUARIUS-ODYSSEY" is inscribed on the center of the reverse, with the mission launch date above and return date below. Additional inscriptions include the anniversary dates "1970-2020" and the names of the three astronauts.
