MEDALLION CARRIED ON GEMINI 11.
Flown medallion, arrow-shaped, 1 1/8 inches long, gold-plated sterling silver. Carried on the Gemini 11 flight. The crew mission emblem is on the obverse, and the flight dates of "Sept 12-15 1966" are engraved on the reverse.

Accompanied by a Typed Note Signed by Charles Conrad, in which he states that the medallion flew in space and is from his personal collection, and also that he “was mission commander and fellow astronaut Richard Gordon was pilot. Our flight accomplished a rendezvous with the Agena target vehicle in less than one orbit of the earth.” The crew emblem illustrates the Gemini spacecraft and Agena target vehicle making increasingly larger orbits around the earth. A space-suited astronaut is also shown during a spacewalk.
