Apollo 11 Robbins Medal

An Apollo 11 Robbins medal is not the rarest Robbins medal flown to the moon.  That distinction goes to the only 80 medals flown to the moon by the Apollo 17 astronauts; the last flight to the lunar surface.  However, given the popularity of Apollo 11 and Neil Armstrong, the Apollo 11 Robbins medal has achieved big bucks here at NateDSanders.com Auctions.  Please see below for the prices realized for these Apollo 11 Robbins medal lots at NateDSanders.com:
