ABOUT THE ORIGINAL ROBBINS MEDALS

Robbins Medals are medallions made exclusively for NASA astronauts. The Robbins Company, a jewelry manufacturer, was commissioned by NASA to work with the astronauts on the design of the medals for each mission into space, beginning with Apollo 7. Only 100 to 450 medals were created per mission, and they were only available for purchase by the NASA astronauts and members of the Astronaut Flight Office (AFO). Once created, the Robbins Medals traveled aboard the astronauts’ missions into space.

WHAT ARE THE APOLLO 11 COMMEMORATIVE ROBBINS MEDALS?

GovMint.com has partnered with members of the Armstrong family to create commemorative medals with the same design as the original Apollo 11 Robbins Medallions. These non-legal tender commemoratives are now available in various metals and price ranges. Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the historic event when Neil Armstrong became the first man to step foot on the moon by ordering one today!

THE NASA PATCH
Each silver-plated commemorative arrives in a story-card which includes an Apollo 11 NASA patch! The medal is secured in a capsule that can be removed from the story-card.
 
Each NASA patch has been designed by its mission’s crew members, beginning with Gemini V. They are then worn 
on the astronauts’ suits.
 
The original design of the Apollo 11 patch showed the eagle carrying an olive branch in its beak. The branch was later moved into the eagle’s talons. This change was made after director of then-named Manned Spacecraft Center, Bob Gilruth, expressed that the eagle’s extended talons looked too menacing.
*The NASA patch is included with the silver-plated medal only.

ROBBINS MEDAL PRODUCTION AND AUCTION
To produce the Robbins Medallions, softened metal is hit or “struck” with a die, pictured left, containing the medal’s design. Launched, landed, and returned fields of moon landing missions were left blank so that accurate dates could later be engraved.
 
The limited number of only 100 to 450 medals created for each mission, the fact that they are closely associated with astronauts, and the fact that Robbins Medallions have traveled into space, makes them very desirable collectibles. In fact, the top 10 auction prices for some original medals are from $30,000 to nearly $62,000.
 
GovMint.com was recently granted access to the original 1969 Apollo 11 Robbins Medal dies. Modeled after the originals, new dies were made to create today's beautiful commemorative Robbins Medals.
