This medallion, though not flown, was made to commemorate the Apollo 16 flight, the fifth manned mission to land on the moon. The crewmembers were Charlie Duke, John W. Young, and Ken Mattingly, Jr. for this April 20-27, 1972, mission. The design features an eagle and shield above the moon and the surnames of the crewmembers. The reverse features the engraved dates.
