Coin depicts mission insignia, including the name of the mission, three of Apollo's chariot horses flying toward the Moon, and the slogan ''Ex Luna, Scientia'' (''from the moon, knowledge''). Verso of coin lists the crew members, space modules, and engraved dates of launch and return, as well as the serial number and the sterling and Robbins hallmarks. Coin measures 1.25'', made of sterling silver and housed in its original ''Robbins Company'' plastic box with an ''145'' sticker on the bottom. Fine. With an LOA from Apollo 13 astronaut Jack Swigert's sister.
