Section Two: Astronaut Artifacts
Apollo 14 Silver Medallion Flown to the Moon with Edgar Mitchell


This Franklin Mint silver medallion was flown to the Moon on Apollo 14 by Lunar Module Pilot Edgar Mitchell.

Working with mission commander Alan Shepard, the Mint furnished the crew with medallions to fly on Apollo 14. In return, the three astronauts were each provided medallions from the quantity that they returned from the Moon.

The obverse of the medal depicts the mission's insignia. The reverse displays the lunar disc, noting the destination of Apollo 14, Fra Mauro.

Mounted and framed, this medallion is held in a place by a cardboard case that has been signed and numbered by Ed Mitchell, on which he has also noted: Flown on Kitty Hawk.
