Why purchase this certified 5 oz. silver antiqued 2021 Apollo 14 Commemorative 50th Anniversary Robbins Medal?
Robbins medals have accompanied every manned U.S. space flight since the Apollo 7 mission in 1968. Minted at the Robbins Company of Attleboro, Massachusetts, each mission's medal is unique, styled to coordinate with the patch worn by the crew members. Upon return to earth, the medals were engraved with the important mission dates. This 2021 Robbins Commemorative Medal is issued in honor of the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 14 voyage to the moon. Imagery features the mission patch design crafted by Apollo 14 astronauts Alan B. Shepard Jr. (Commander), Edgar D. Mitchell (Lunar Module Pilot) and Stuart A. Roosa (Command Module Pilot). A scan of an authentic Apollo 14 space-flown medal was used to create this magnificent anniversary release.
Design Inspired by the Apollo 14 Crew Mission Patch
Obverse: The obverse features a rendition of the mission patch, depicting the vapor trail of a rocket on its journey from the earth to the moon. The rocket is fashioned in the shape of the prestigious Astronaut Pin, which is earned in silver by those who have completed astronaut training, and then awarded in gold once an astronaut has flown in space. The image is surrounded by a border containing the inscription "APOLLO 14," along with the astronauts' names "SHEPARD," "ROOSA" and "MITCHELL."
Reverse: The dates of launch, lunar landing and return to earth of the Apollo 14 mission are inscribed on the reverse, with "5 TROY OZ .999 AG" above, and the anniversary dates "1971-2021" below. The astronauts' full names encircle the design.
