This gold plated medallion was flown on Gemini X with Astronauts Young and Collins.

This artifact was consigned for auction by the Ed White II Estate.  It was auctioned in the  Superior Galleries Spring 1999 Space Memorabilia Auction on May 15, 1999.

This was lot number 460 in that auction.  The description in the auction catalog stated, "460. Flown Gold Plated Sterling Silver 25 mm. Medallion (unnumbered) in its original plastic box.  The medallion is engraved on the reverse 'Gemini 10 / July 18-21 / 1966'. The gold-plated medallions were carried by the astronauts in very limited quantities for their wives only. We have not offered this medallion before. Rare. Ex the Ed White II Estate collection."

This artifact was acquired by the Earth To The Moon Air & Space Museum from the Superior Galleries auction.
